As celebrated opera singer Celeste makes plans for a comeback performance 10 years on from the tragic death of her husband, the reappearance of her stepson sets into motion a cascade of events.

Radha Mitchell is captivating as the complex Celeste. Hidden from the world at a crumbling estate in lush tropical Far North Queensland, she anxiously reaches out to Jack, her late husband’s son, inviting him to return to the languid, sprawling family home for her much-anticipated recital. Jack’s reappearance after a long absence stirs up unsettling memories, pulling them both into a mutually precarious orbit. Celeste’s beguiling yet troubled demeanour proves as intoxicating as the verdant ruins and just as overgrown with mystery.
