Following the grisly discovery of the bloodied and battered bodies of a young woman and a man on a property not far from the highway, the truck driver is forced to confront the very real possibility that there is a killer on the loose and then convince his fellow travellers that they are all in danger.
Trapped on a long stretch of the Silver City Highway, just outside Broken Hill, they enter a nightmarish journey in which they are powerless, and from which there seems no escape. They are unable to go either forward or backward—on this nightmarish journey littered with road kill, that just won't end. And when they run out of petrol, the land seems to channel them towards the homestead property where the gory murders occurred.
Told from shifting perspectives by characters who each seem to be hiding something, the suspense builds as the group collapses under the escalating stress.
A chilling, foreboding supernatural horror set in the harsh light of day. Turly scary - Catherine Jinks' best.
