As scripted by John Doyle and directed by Cherie Nowlan, this Australian drama unfolds in a narrow-minded and prejudicial Aussie small town. Not long after 9/11, a cross-cultural romance develops when young boy named Hal (Abe Forsythe) falls for Randa (Bojana Novakovic), an Afghan refugee girl. The couple runs headfirst into bigotry, hatred, contempt, and eventually, violence - all of which grow more severe given local memories of the Al-Qaeda terror attacks against the United States. Hal, however, concocts a clever plan to save the relationship.
