The year is 1925. The Burbank brothers are wealthy ranchers in Montana. At the Red Mill restaurant on their way to market, the brothers meet Rose, the widowed proprietress and her impressionable son Peter. Phil behaves so cruelly he drives them both to tears, revelling their hurt and rousing his fellow cowhands to laughter - all except his brother George, who comforts Rose then returns to marry her. As Phil swings between fury and curring, his taunting of Rose takes an eerie form - he hovers at the edges of her vision, whiltling a tune she can no longer play. His mockery of her son is more overt, amplified by the cheering of Phil's cowhand desciples. Then Phil appears to take the boy under his wing. Is this latest gesture a softening that leaves Phil exposed, or a plot twisting further into menace? Shot in the Maniototo region of Central Otago on the New Zealand South Island, plus an Auckland sound stage. Additional footage was shot at the Dunedin Railway station and Oamaru's Victorian Precinct.
