“A very specific sense of place comes across strongly in Lodkina’s minimalist yet striking film.” – David Stratton, The Australian
Melina is making the 18-hour bus journey to be with her estranged, ailing father. He’s one of the lost, lonely men who hunt for black opals, deep in the Australian outback. She’s not entirely sure why she’s there, or why she stays, but as Melina is drawn ever further into the community, she discovers that there’s more to these men than she first assumed — and perhaps even more to herself.
