AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Returning home through the scrub after a night out two teenage girls seek respite from the stifling heat. Fuelled by cheap alcohol and teenage hormones they make their way to an isolated fire-water tank, lured by the promise of cool water. Once inside the tank the intimate mood takes a dangerous turn when they discover they are trapped with no way out.'
