'In a wealthy part of Sydney, Felicity Bannister (Kerry Walker) pretends she has been raped by a prowler, in order to take control of her own life. Her neurotic mother (Ruth Cracknell) is more worried about her daughter's upcoming wedding. Her father (John Frawley) is concerned that she's no longer a virgin. As the family's fragile structure crumbles, Felicity becomes a prowler herself.'
