In New South Wales, Jared surfs with his mates and has a first girl. He hosts a beach party for his older pal, Ricko, and witnesses four of his mates gang-rape a 15 year old. He does nothing, and the next day, she's found murdered. At school, the boys and the girls react: the girls with anger at the perpetrators, the boys with jeering at the dead girl's morality. The students' parents have their own responses. Jared retreats into angry silence, disgusted that he did nothing to help the dead girl. Meanwhile, his mother wants to talk to him about her impending cancer surgery, the police want to know what he saw, and his friend Ricko wants an alibi. Jared's cracking under the pressure.

I was an extra in this movie and being a local and having friends living in the area where it happened i had high hopes . The day or so i was on set was fun and the cast seemed pretty down to earth , plenty of sun and some waves at the beach .
After the long wait for it to be in the cinemas and getting my friends to go , i wanted to crawl out of there after 5 minutes , i felt way too old(was 23). In retrospect i should have asked for my money back but i think i was in shock . Instead of a real life event that effected many peoples lives it looked trivialised on screen .
Anybody remember a series called heartbreak high well that was better !
