Under the wing of Jack Mindy (Sam Neill, The Piano), Martin lodges at the home of Lucy (Frances O'Connor, AI: Artificial Intelligence), who is grief-stricken after the disappearance of her activist husband, Jarrah, and struggling to care for her two children, Sass and Bike. As Martin embarks upon his clandestine mountain search for the elusive creature, he finds himself unexpectedly drawn to the troubled family and trying to resolve the mysteries hidden within the treacherous landscape.
