Three Australian stories of the supernatural are recounted in this anthology. Rick (Jack Charles), an Aboriginal boy living near a swamp on Bribie Island, is haunted by an American solider who drowned in quicksand. Ruby (Tracey Moffatt) and her family live in a house near long-abandoned train tracks, which still carry ghostly apparitions. A landlord (Lex Marinos) has trouble evicting the tenants of an old warehouse: a couple that's been dead for years.
In the best style of the supernatural stories of the television sixties Tracey Moffatt give us avant gard cinematography making a stylized Australian outback mixed between real things and sets with a very beautiful and dramatical photography full of irony, humour ,suspense and tragedy; she made a very unusual films and as always with this kind of films is very hard to accept the new reality that the director propose, then after the mixed feelings regular moviegoers but just of the regular cinema that always told the same story and in the same style never creating a new world, probably could be disappointed, if you think cinema is an adventure and the approximation to new cosmovisions and of course poetry and beauty, then this is a film for you.
