Synopsis:
Set in mid-1950's Australia, with the fear of Communism in the air and the country's farmlands overrun by a plague of rabbits, the film depicts a long, hot summer seen through the eyes and over-active imagination of nine year old Celia (Rebecca Smart). Shaken by the death of her beloved grandmother, Celia finds herself adrift between the cruel games and rituals of childhood and the incomprehensible world of grown-ups. With monstrous creatures stalking her dreams by night, those imagined terrors blur by day with the banal brutality of the adult world leading to tragic and shocking consequences.
