Short Film Profile


A family has come to Australia, leaving behind their home land in Scotland, and into an uncertain, and unfamiliar world. The present family situation sees the dependants having to always be looking for their mentally ill father who, this time, has gone missing in the remote snowy mountains.

Film notes

Director’s statement
With this film, I wanted to provoke a consideration for those living with mental illness in their families. In particular, I was curious to explore how a father’s declining mental-health might effect the lives of his young sons, and subsequently, what sacri- fices this might force them to make.
