A forest ranger is haunted by the disappearance of his four-year-old daughter and the subsequent breakup of his marriage. He then discovers his ex-wife is pregnant to the policeman in charge of his missing daughter's case. The character-driven drama explores themes of trust and betrayal and the nature of grief and loss, survival and healing. Filmed in Auckland, Piha and the Waitakere Range. I am quite impressed with this film, especially Anthony Starr's performance. I would not hesitate to recommend this memorable effort.
