Summary Sydney school-girl Helena has just finished Year 12 and decides to spend her summer holidays as a volunteer at Mother Teresa's in Calcutta. Her older sister Claire goes too, to film her sibling's experience. A story of a young, strong-willed but naÍve Australian girl wanting to 'do good' but learning the limitations of what is possible in one of the poorest and grubbiest cities on earth. Big questions and values, life's meaning and worth, the human condition, sibling angst are all explored in this personal journey filmed by Claire, experienced by Helena.
