What would YOU do with your late father's secrets?
16 March 2000 | by roostersmalingSee all my reviews

An Australian woman, working as a solicitor in the UK, receives news of her father's death in Sydney. His video will reveals his shady, underhanded dealings, as a former Premier of New South Wales, with Sydney and international organised crime syndicates and his illegal Swiss bank accounts.

Returning to Sydney to gather the pieces of her late father's life, she finds out his information is wanted by many high powered organisations worldwide as well as the Australian Federal Police!

Cleverly written, suspenseful, this was ratings success on European TV, but many Australians, I talk to, have, sadly, never heard of this mini-series. As a proud Sydneysider, I believe the city makes a wonderful backdrop for any movie.
