This acclaimed drama from 1975 adapts a Katherine Mansfield story about three travellers who encounter a strange woman and child, at a remote country store. Co-directed by Roger Donaldson and Ian Mune, it won Feltex Awards for Best Script (Mune and Peter Hansard) and Actress (Ilona Rodgers). Mune and Donaldson used the drama's success and innovative financing model as a 'proof of concept', to secure funding for their 1976 series Winners & Losers. The Woman at the Store debuted on Kiwi TV screens in March 1975; it was sold as part of the Winners series overseas.

...exciting to watch, true to the original story, excellently acted ... and skilfully edited —a thoroughly polished piece that evokes more than it portrays and is, I predict, a certain candidate for this year's Feltex Award.
– Writer Alexander Fry in The Listener, 22 March 1975, page 30
