The movie is based on the true story of beautiful young Australian model Caroline Byrne, who tragically met her death in 1995. She was found at the bottom of the high cliffs of "the Gap"; a notorious suicide spot in Sydney. But soon suspicion arose about her very controlling boyfriend. And the deeper investigators looked into her case, the less likely it seemed that she could have landed like that from jumping voluntarily. Caroline's father, naturally devastated over the loss of his lovely daughter, was determined not to give up before the truth about Caroline's death had been revealed.
This is definitely one of the best made for TV films I've seen. I'm a huge fan of Cariba Heine, which is the main reason I watched this movie and I'm so glad I did. All of the actors were spectacular, and the storyline was intriguing and exciting. I particularly liked the flashback scenes.
Overall I think the entire movie is brilliant. It even made me cry a couple of times! I'm very interested in the Caroline Byrne case now and I truly hope Cariba's portrayal of her did the real Caroline justice.
Just a warning that this movie does contain sex scenes and some language. However, it's still a must-watch! I can't look at David Lyons (who plays Gordon Wood) the same after watching this movie. It also may help if you research the Caroline Byrne court case a bit before watching. I did and it made the experience much better.
