India travels back to her childhood home ‘Ambrosia’ to spend time with her brother, boyfriend and long time childhood friend. It’s a place of comfort and memories that she hopes will calm her anxious mind.
Through the tranquil surrounds of Ambrosia a new face appears. And she calls herself Harry.
India and Harry form a curious bond, a friendship that grows only at dawn by the ocean. It is a companionship that India begins to enjoy, for her sleepless hours are no longer spent alone.
However India finds herself grappling with traumatic events of her past – events from her childhood that have affected her ever since. It becomes apparent to India that no one really understands its severity and its affect on her life.
Amidst her feelings of isolation and anxiety, Harry offers her comfort.
When Harry makes an introductory appearance at India’s house, her other friends appear to sweep Harry up with open arms. Before long, Harry has become part of their endless summer of make believes.
But it is in the guise of friendship that Harry begins to unravel bonds and test allegiances. India grows more and more unsettled as Harry’s presence taints the room of her childhood sanctuary.
As the holiday draws to a close India and the group are forced to confront the tragedies of the past. One a night of celebration and masquerade, secrets of their intertwined stories are revealed that will change them all forever.
Coming soon to Australian cinemas.
