Mary Power was well schooled in despair before she left her childhood - inspiring the grownup Mary Power to tenaciously seek out joy. Born in 1924, her earliest years, spent by the sea in an isolated Newfoundland outport community were happy. But soon darkness descended on her young life, due in part by a tragic loss and time in an orphanage. It was as an adult, that Mary Power was able to create a happy life. Beyond a rich family life, she became a master storyteller, and a keeper of outport Newfoundland traditions and culture. And in seeking joy, she gave great joy to others.
The documentary on Mary Power was created by Heather Barrett.
