SYNOPSIS : “There is a demon on its way. It is a demon that will arrive stealthily and deviously.” These words, phophesised in 1883, could easily have been written about Jesse’s and Rochelle’s story of addiction – about lost childhoods, marital abuse, destructive behaviour and finally the road to recovery. Their story is all too familiar to Dame Naida Glavish DNZM, who uncovers long-forgotten truths Aotearoa has buried – revealing how a disconnection with wairua (spirituality) creates fertile ground for addiction to take hold of young wāhine such as Jesse and Rochelle.
