'An Australian Gothic, Kafkaesque tale about a young woman’s investigation into Australia’s Phantom Cat.
'Sally’s busy life as a city-living student does not fulfil her. Her boyfriend James won’t please her. Her mother won’t help her. Maybe a road-trip to research the urban legend of Australia’s Phantom Cat will bring a little interest to Sally’s life.
'In the bush of Gippsland, The Tom waits. This big cat has feasted on cattle, taken domestic pets and created excitement in the day-to-day lives of Gippsland’s residents. Were its ancestors panthers, abandoned by the circus? Or is it the reincarnation of a long-dead bush-ranger?
'Sally tries to find the answers, and slowly loses herself.'
