A complicated thriller, which entangles Wattle, a mother and wife, living what appears to be a very luxurious existence, in the exquisite seaside resort town of Lorne, Australia. She is nervously covering up a secret, involving her husband and her son, that is about to explode the perfect illusion that she has attempted to hide from her close-knit community. Like the passion vines, that entangle themselves and suffocate the Australian rainforest, Bush is a story of the entwinement of various lives into a complicated root system that lies just below the surface. These characters find themselves on an intoxicating course which creates catastrophic outcomes for everyone who becomes caught up in the undergrowth of the story and the outcomes are terrifying, breathtaking, heartbreaking and unexpected.
A story of murder, conflict, environmental awareness, domestic violence, love, lust and the idea that dreams and nightmares can come true.
