Storyline

Newcomers to the remote Australian desert town of Nathgari, Catherine and Matthew Parker's lives are flung into crisis when they discover their two teenage kids, Tommy and Lily, have mysteriously disappeared just before a massive dust storm hits. With Nathgari eerily smothered in red dust and darkness, the townsfolk join the search led by local cop, David Rae. It soon becomes apparent that something terrible may have happened to Tommy and Lily. Suspicions run riot, rumours spread and public opinion turns savagely against the Parkers. With temperatures rising and the chances of survival plummeting with each passing day, Catherine and Matthew find themselves pushed to the brink as they struggle to survive the mystery of their children's fate.

Seems Nicole Kidman wanted money very badly!! Hence this master"mess" movie. Spare yourself,Please don't watch.
26 September 2015 | by Ashay JSee all my reviews

I was left speechless when the movie ended. The main question was "why did they make this movie?" And why Nicole Kidman bothered to accept such role? Whole movie progresses very slowly, with not much drama (except their children gone missing) and awfully creepy music (which is totally mismatch for the scenes). You keep expecting to get some twists and explanations till the end and after the end you keep wondering why we wasted our time in expecting. Each and every character is shown as if they are having some mysterious secret (why? why?? why???). Kidman's character is the weirdest one (you will find out after watching the movie,but please don't take the risk). I decided to write the review only to make all you aware that the movie is totally pointless & worthless. Please please please don't waste your time.
