Western Sydney security guard and part time ghost hunter Jason has spent two decades searching for his absent father. As a survivor of violence, he seeks to reconcile his fractured memories and piece together his past.
Jason may spend his spare time hunting the supernatural for others, but it soon becomes clear that what he’s really seeking are the ghosts of his past. As his search converges with a police man-hunt, a horrific family secret is exposed- forcing Jason to reclaim his future.
What began as simply a documentary about a part-time ghost hunter quickly develops into something much more - a portrait of memories and pain that is utterly human.
“As humans, we have to forget in order to survive, but we have this burning desire to remember what happened. It’s this struggle that lies at the heart of the film,” - director Ben Lawrence.
