“Visually arresting mood piece … (marks) first-time writer-director Grant Scicluna as someone to watch” – The Hollywood Reporter
James (Reef Ireland) is a jailbird at 17, having done time for drowning a little boy when he himself was a child. It’s an incident shrouded in uncertainty – a seizure muddies James’ own memory of the boy’s final moments, and the body was never found. Estranged from his family, driven by remorse and seeking redemption, he travels back to his small hometown on the banks of the Yarra River looking for answers – and encounters the damaged and manic Anthony (Tom Green), who was with him during the killing.
Slow-burning and evocative, this slice of Australian Gothic is an impressive debut.
