  • 'A mother's death draws her three estranged daughters back to their ramshackle childhood home on the remote North Queensland coast. The three sisters have drifted about as far apart as it is possible to drift and each of them has a different reason for returning. Awkwardly thrust together in a place they would prefer to remain buried in memory, they are forced to confront her legacy of half-truths, unfinished business and family secrets. Over the course of twenty four hours the skeletons in the family closet emerge, rattling violently, as it becomes clear that the oldest sister, Cressy holds the key to a terrifying secret'.
