This film presents a brief biography of Jane Austen (16 December 1775-18 July 1817), and explores the landscapes where she spent her life. Austen lived her entire life as part of a small and close-knit family located on the lower fringes of English gentry, and her works analyze the novels of sensibility of the second half of the eighteenth century. Austen's biting social commentary was aimed at moral issues, principally the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security.

Now completely lost, the trio stumbles upon a hill tribe, whose children are adorned with wings made from bamboo and paper.
