Plot & Details

This is a quite short independently produced film about a homecoming. Rosie (Cate Blanchett) returns to Adelaide for her father Cliff's funeral. Some of the wry humor in this drama is underscored by the use of Chamber of Commerce-type promotional films about Adelaide, made in the '50s and '60s. Cliff (Tony Martin) left Rosie's mother some time before the story begins, and in the intervening years she hasn't spent much time with him. Cliff's mistress (Carmel Johnson) invites Rosie to stick around a while. She does and begins investigating his life during the time they were apart. There are hints that though he was a policeman, he was somehow involved in the drug trade.
