Alma, a happy-go-lucky individualist who works in a food market and who has an adopted family of all ages — and Thelma, a wealthy, super­stitious, domineering old hypochondriac who lives in a dreary castle where she holds her grand­daughter a prisoner in a tower room.

Jerome Hill has a numher of documentary films to his credit including ihe Academy Award Winner, Albert Schweitzer. His first feature, The Sundiastle was shown at the 1962 Melbourne Film Festival.
