AbstractHistoryArchive Description

On a cold morning in the middle of country Victoria, two brothers arrive at the family home intent on murdering their step-father, Roger. Terry and Jeff’s motive is simple, killing their step-dad will render their dying mother’s plan to change her will in his favour, redundant. The staged suicide has been meticulously planned but there is one thing the boys didn’t take into account, spending an entire day together. Old grudges, different world views and a general troubled history will pit these two brothers against each other and by the end of the day, three people will be dead.' (Screen Australia)
