A small town, on State Highway 1, where nothing ever happens...then Rex Devlin dies in a suspicious car wreck and a mysterious stranger moves into the Temuka Hotel. Why is one of the world's biggest multinational corporations so desperate to buy a dowdy little backwater petrol station? Has Oscar Devlin really come all the way home from Los Angeles to sort out his meagre inheritance, or is it Frankie he's come to see? The DVD lists Bruno Lawrence as a cast member; given that Bruno died in 1995 you might wonder about that. I will only say that 'Rex Devlin' is "played by Bruno. Filmed in Temuka, Timaru and environs in documentary style; meaning the actors occationally talk to the viewer. Recommended.
