War photographer Daniel Fisher (Hugo Weaving, THE MATRIX, THE LORD OF THE RINGS, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER) has returned home to the news of his wife’s pregnancy. Determined not to let fatherhood alter his way of life, he begins preparations for an upcoming exhibition and his next overseas assignment. However, as the birth of his child draws near he struggles to keep his rising anxiety hidden.
Meanwhile, South Sudanese refugee Sebastian Ahmed (Andrew Luri) has created a safe life in Australia with his wife and child. His peaceful life is disturbed when Daniel’s exhibition threatens to display photographs of a massacre that occurred in Sebastian’s home village 15 years earlier. When Sebastian approaches Daniel with an appeal to not display any images of the massacre, an unlikely friendship develops between the two men that challenges Daniel’s creative control and unearths disturbing details surrounding Sebastian’s past.
