Journey of A Story follows the life of William Brown, a fictional New Zealand serviceman both physically and emotionally damaged by his tour of duty in Europe and time as a Prisoner of War during World War II. Returning home, he finds a very different world to the one he left behind. Forced to leave the home he planned to enjoy with his wife Lily and young son James, he struggles to cope until an observant War Pension medical officer convinces William to follow his interest in writing.
Fuelled with a new passion for life, William finally finds a road to success and redemption, in ways he could not have possibly imagined.
Shot entirely on weekends on location in Auckland with a volunteer team, Journey of a Story is a tribute to a generation of Kiwi men, women, and their families that dealt with not only the war years but the difficult times they endured afterwards.
Featuring a soundtrack performed by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and contributions by over a hundred volunteers.
Rated PG - Adult themes.
Running time 91 minutes.
