Famed Australian concert pianist Eileen Joyce stars as herself in the 1953 biopic Wherever She Goes. The film traces Eileen's life and work from childhood, when she first evinced the musical brilliance that would earn her international acclaim. Unfortunately, Eileen's poverty-stricken family is unable to finance a proper education for the girl. To pay for her lessons, the girl becomes a combination itinerant musician and high-stakes gambler. Eventually, Eileen is unofficially adopted by a group of miners, who begin a fund-raising campaign on her behalf. Suzanne Parrett plays the younger Eileen Joyce with unerring accuracy.
