- The Wife Who Spoke Japanese In Her Sleep by Vivienne Plumb
Director Kathy McRae

Honey Tarbox, an ordinary Kiwi housewife with ordinary quarter-acre dreams, inexplicably begins speaking Japanese in her sleep.

The Wife Who Spoke Japanese In Her Sleep is an exploration of metamorphosis with a comedic twist.
