In the Shadow of Eden

In her short film In the Shadow of Eden, filmmaker Rachael Romero comes to grips with the physical, sexual and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of her religion-fixated father while growing up in rural South Australia. The film includes memories of her time in the Good Shepherd Sisters' laundry at The Pines in Plympton, Adelaide.
