Storyline

When young Magistrate, Peter Lawrence, goes to the seemingly sleepy township of Merringanee, he finds there is far more seething below the tranquil surface of the small rural township than he expected. First, he finds his car stolen and then, when his car is found, he discovers the existence of a long-buried body - which he then makes it his business to investigate.
