AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Matthew Wesker, a city dweller at heart, moves to the stagnating town of Cedar to take up a teaching job. Out of his depth in the bush, he’s opposed to guns and afraid of what they might bring out in him. So when his girlfriend invites him to join a weekend shooting trip at Regret Falls, he goes with reluctance, torn between his conscience and his desire to please. In an atmosphere of sexual jealousy, racial tension and personal humiliations, what seems like paradise becomes a hellish nightmare, a fatal brew that leads inevitably to tragedy.'
