When Dawn's (Gainsbourg) husband dies suddenly at their outback home, she and her four children are left grieving and bereft. But when eight year-old Simone (Davies) tells her mother she can hear her father through the leaves of their Moreton Bay Fig, Dawn takes solace from the tree's strange presence.
An eerie and unsettling adaptation of Judy Pascoe's novel that impresses more for its atmospherics than its narrative.
