First time director, Harold Brodie, gives the film noir genre a modern New Zealand relevance. Theresa meets John, who has just returned after a five year absence. Immediately taken by his charm, the two begin dating. But Theresa is easily drawn into John's world of drugs, alcohol and shady dealings. Slowly John's haunted past becomes undeniable, and it will require the help of her friend Kim and John's partner Billy to help pull Theresa from John's spell.
