After driving husband Martin to infidelity and catching him with another, mentally unstable author Jade returns to her New Zealand home. The plan is to write a book based on the town's history, helped by the local school teacher and her college thesis protégée, and visit her father Christopher. As her editor later explains, her suspicions concerning ever more locals stem from a pathological mental condition. However, more then just paranoia comes with the horse riding incident which killed her ma, an obsessive guilt matter for her and Christopher. Written by
Jade Harper is a successful writer who suffers from a slight form of schizophrenia. One day she discovers her husband has an affair with her editor. She flees to Hopewell where she was born, under the pretext of writing a history of the village, only to receive a cold welcome from her father who blames her for her mother's death. As she begins her research she discovers dark secrets surrounding her mother's death... The acting in this movie is bad and the lighting is somber, but the script is the worst component of this boring pseudo-thriller. Never mind that it can't decide what to be: a straight thriller or a ghost story. In the end none of the supernatural elements are explained and the explanation that is given is far less satisfying than that of your average "Murder She Wrote"-episode (and that is saying a lot).
Although IMDb originally listed this movie as '2008' it was shown on one of the smaller Flemish stations on July 9th, 2007 under the alternative title "Dead Write".
