Raw footage of an interview with solo mother Joanne Klaver, attempting to connect with a Māori culture she was denied growing up. Klaver, a mother of two young boys, provides a contemporary insight into the issue, for while one of her sons is hearing, the other - Charles Klaver - is Deaf and boards at Kelston’s Totara Village. Charles is also interviewed.
The original interview was 1.5 hours long and has been edited down to 38:13 minutes long.
