Lasting performances and a gripping tale.
23 July 2005 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This has been a personal favourite of mine since it was first shown, as it is a fast paced, gripping story about basic human emotions.Samantha Shepherd's son, Will, is found to have Leukaemia. Blood tests show that her husband is not the biological father and she is sent on a wild chase to find the man she shared a love affair with, 6 years before. There is one small catch - the man is an escaped convict... in Australia!The actors offer lasting performances - Tom Long offers his best yet, in my opinion, as convict Michael Tyler. William McInnes is yet again captivating as crooked cop Daryl Quint and British actor Hugo Speer shines as the wronged husband, Nick.
