An unsentimental drama in which the relationships and psychological tensions among seven teenagers are explored in some depth. Neil is in therapy - he feels responsible for the accidental death of his brother, when a child. He and a group of friends spend a weekend in a country house making a film. Sexual tension and jealousy lurk beneath the fun , and this becomes more accute when Lionel has an interest in Rose, with whom Neil has a budding relationship. The boisterous Lance suggests that they all take some LSD, which goes along rather swimmingly until Lionel is killed in an accident while Neil is driving. Although is UK/NZ co-production was filmed in the UK, Anna Campion and many crew are expatriate New Zealanders. Postproduction was in New Zealand.
