Tony is released from prison and goes in search of what once was happiness, Anna. She has vanished so he hits the road North in hope of finding her. Along the way he meets Sam, (Judy Morris), and a relationship develops between the two. How wonderful it is to see the South coast along the Melbourne to Sydney route and the realism of Sydney at the time as never captured before in honesty by an Australian filmmaker. (The scene with the Eternity man gave me goose bumps.) The story is not told in chronological order and leaves you guessing. You think you have it tied up midway through but director/writer Esben is a step ahead of us. Some wonderful moments with strong performances hold this unstable film together through its weaker moments.
