Having spent years living as a recluse on her beautiful but dilapidated estate in the heart of a rainforest in Far North Queensland, opera diva Celeste (Radha Mitchell) announces a one-off comeback performance. In the midst of preparation for the gig, Celeste’s troubled stepson Jack (Thomas Cocquerel) appears, in search of escape. It’s gradually revealed that the fraught relationship between the pair stems from a desperate tragedy years before, though they find themselves needing to rely on each other. The lush tropical setting and compelling performances from Mitchell, and Cocquerel in particular, propel this absorbing tale of desire and deliverance.
