              Based on the true story of an unsung hero of World War One, Choosing Rainbows, is a story of one man's epic struggle against incredible odds to prevent the tendrils of an evil war reaching his home and family. Richard Feaver emigrates from England to the wilds of 1896 New Zealand... as a child with his family. His father becomes a chemist, doctor, photographer and a beloved part of the community. His mother, spurred on by the suffragette movement that saw women voting for the first time, sets up a school for girls. Richard meets Vida, the daughter of a Methodist minister, as wild and free as the New Zealand landscape. She has grown up on a remote mission station in Northland surrounded by the wairua of Maori spirituality. Just as their love starts to blossom the evils of a war tear them apart. He forges bonds of friendship and camaraderie that carry him through the adversity. Poetry and music is his catharsis. The puppet masters notice skills in him they can use and he is placed in the war machine. But when the orders come, will he do what is right or will he do his job?Original aerial photographs of fields of battle, postcards, letters, diary entries, and poems by Richard Feaver are included throughout. Choosing Rainbows is a brutally vivid, incredible true life story of an unsung Kiwi hero in the bloodiest war in history.
