Based on the novel 'Jessica' by Bryce Courtenay, this epic four-hour period drama traces a women's harsh, tumultous life in the Australian bush. A sweeping saga of love, deceit and sacrifice set during the early years of the 20th century in the farmlands around Narrandera, a small frontier town in rural New South Wales, Jessica stars Leeanna Wallsman as a beautiful, spirited tomboy who rises up against the ruthless ambition of her mother. The fine cast also features Sam Neill (Jurrasic Park) in the role of the alcoholic English barrister Richard Runche, Jessica’s one trusted ally in the town. A hugely successful TV mini-series, Jessica comes to DVD here for the first time. Disc 1 contains the first part of the series.
