"Dream is a shadow of something real." Chris Lee (David Gulpilil), internationally acclaimed filmmaker Peter Weir (Oscar nominated director of Picnic at Hanging Rock, Gallipoli and Witness) explores a startling world on the brink of apocalypse in The Last Wave, a time and place where Mother Nature and human nature are destined to collide in catastrophic disaster. When lawyer David Burton (Richard Chamberlain, The Thorn Birds) is assigned a case to defend a group of indigenous Australian men, he is unprepared for the nightmares and dreamscapes ahead. Accused of murdering one of their own, the men stand trial amidst suspicious circumstances and, as Burton becomes plagued by unsettling visions, he is drawn to the mysterious Chris Lee (AFI Award winner David Gulpilil, Storm Boy, The Tracker) for answers to his torment. As the erratic climate turns dangerous, Burton senses a greater power at play, where tribal customs and the ancient ideas of Dreamtime may be more than just an ominous warning. Featuring atmospheric cinematography by Oscar® winner Russell Boyd (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World), The Last Wave is a haunting journey into the depths of the unknown, where dreams and nightmares conspire as one

Dr Kate McDonald is married to the small farming community of Paringa, where she's been the vet for 15 years. For most of that time she's been hiding a secret, and as a result, refuses to allow anyone to get close to her. Needless to say, she has problems keeping an assistant, something she desperately needs. Kate's newest assistant, Dr Jill Blake (Victoria Thaine), is 24 and keen to widen her veterinary experience with farm animals. She's 'by the book', enthusiastic, and ready to try new techniques. But it doesn't take her long to realise that she's made a huge mistake in leaving the city for Paringa. Her boss is the rudest person she's ever met and Paringa is not exactly the idyllic country town of her dreams. Somehow, these two opinionated women must find a way to come to terms with each other and the difficulties they encounter in supporting the failing district and Kate's overstretched veterinary practice. In the community, well established farmers face ruin as they gamble on re-stocking and re-development. The prolonged drought creates emotional and financial strain on families and people are leaving the land because of financial failure, or because they cannot take any more. As the economic future of the district moves towards crisis, Jill, young, idealistic and direct, becomes increasingly aware that Kate's stoicism and determination mask the emotionally consumptive effects of a tragic past life

"Mt. Thomas, population 10,000. An average sized country town, with an above average crime rate. Where morality reighns and goodness triumphs over evil... most of the time. It's a town whose fortunes rise and fall with the price of wheat and lamb. The highway brings tourists, trouble and endless work for the police station and the local community aren't shy in coming forward when they don't agree with the local coppers. This poses a constant challenge for the young officers recruited from the city, as their perceptions and ideals are challenged daily by the alien (but very moral) values of the bush. What Mt. Thomast lacks in height is more than made up by the personalities of its inhabitants. in particular, the officers of the Mt. Thomas Police Station - caught in the act of living and working in a close-knit rural community during tough times. For cops in Mt. Thomas, life's about more than the badge"--Container
