The Three Lives of Lucie Cabrol charts the long and arduous life of 'the cocadrille', Lucie Cabrol, who, although outcast by her family and her lover discovers the possibility of something more than bare human existence - the survival of hope and love.

The Three Lives of Lucie Cabrol was inspired by Pig Earth, John Berger's novel about peasant life in France at the beginning of the twentieth century.
