For three days in autumn, a gorgeous rural property four hours west of Sydney was home to three actors, nine crew, six dogs and a mouse. This was the family of ‘The Palace That I Live In’, an independent film financed entirely via crowd-funding.

Regretting the unfulfilled aspirations of her eccentric mother, 17 year-old Poppy struggles to accept her life in a run-down shed on a decaying rural property. Her vividly imagined dreams lend her escape, but an awkward friendship with a boy from a nearby property leads to a greater understanding of what it means to live a normal life.
