A 13 year old girl is raped and murdered in a small country town. Ten years later, the murderer is up for parole and the victim's father has vowed personal vengence if the killer is released. Sometime journalist, Lisa, is haunted by the crime and in confronting the killer she starts a chain of events that puts her own life in danger. A fair presentation of the thriller genre, based upon real events, but its very low budget is showing. The DVD has an optional commentary track by the director, McKenzie and major actor, Miranda Harcourt.

Censor Rating: R 16 - Review rating: C+
