Interesting little mystery drama
17 October 1998 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Strange little drama about a replacement teacher, who begins to suspect foul play in the disappearance of his predecessor. Nicely shot, and a good performance from Nick Tate, a sadly underrated actor in Australia.
