‘Finding the Lighthouse’ is a short drama following two sisters who have been estranged for five years. They meet at a rural car park with an objective to take their recently deceased mother’s ashes to the lighthouse they once went to as kids. On the journey, they each battle with the awkwardness of the situation while re-discovering their relationship. Emilia reveals something to Charlie that changes the dynamic of their relationship completely. The walk started as duty but ended as reconnection and finally, Aroha as a result of the shared experience.
