By Finegan Kruckemeyer
Directed by Noel Jordan


Three sisters are abandoned in the middle of a forest by their father. Facing an uncertain future, one decides to walk one way around the world, one decides to walk the other way and one decides to stay right where she is. After 20 years having crossed oceans, toppled lighthouses and conquered armies, the two wanderers find themselves back at the same place in the woods, where the third sister waits...

"This Girl Laughs... follows in the best tradition of fairytales through the ages - an engagingly told yarn for the children of today, with lessons for adults also; and with Barking Gecko's spirited presentation bringing an extra dimension to ensure it remains in the memory. 4.5 out of 5 stars"
