      PLOT OUTLINE:
      Cally is not herself and she knows it. All she can do is follow the instructions as given to her by them. Because they are beginning to run out of patience.

      With her young children in tow - six year old Olivia and four year old Benji – Cally embarks on a dangerous journey across town to Melbourne's International Airport.

      The voices have it all arranged. Cally’s sister Maggie will understand. At least that what Cally hopes. Cally finds herself armed with a loaded pistol at the International Departure terminal. The voices are driving her into and beyond a deadly Mexican stand-off with airport customs and federal police.

      Can the love between a little girl and her mother break the dead-lock?
