Residents of a small New Zealand town are eagerly anticipating a visit from Queen Elizabeth II after one young local, Elizabeth (Sally Andrews), begs the royal to come in a string of letters. For Elizabeth, the queen's impending arrival means everything, until she befriends a Maori woman, Hira (Vicky Haughton), who is campaigning against the queen's appearance. Elizabeth learns that Hira is still haunted by atrocities the British committed against the Maori people almost 100 years ago.
