    • Bette (early 40's), a renowned opera diva, retired early for the man she loved to live on a decaying and beautiful estate in the heart of a rainforest in North Queensland. Seven years after the tragic death of her husband in a boating accident, Bette is set to return to the stage for her final performance. Her husband’s son Jack (23), still haunted by the past, arrives amidst the preparations for the performance and finds Bette is as he remembered – beautiful, intoxicating and dangerous.
      Bette wants Jack to stay at the estate, but needs him to perform one last request.

      From award-winning director Ben Hackworth comes an elegant story of a family falling apart, coming back together and their last chance to keep a decaying world alive. This is a story of desire and redemption.
