Top of the Lake meets The Silent Wife in this taut domestic thriller. When Clare O'Dey turns up alone and unannounced in the remote mountain mining town of Blackmore, its residents have little reason to connect her arrival to the recent disappearance of local drug addict Shayna Fowles. Already well versed in hiding the details of her own past, Clare plays the part of an amateur travel photographer in search of landscape. In truth, she has been sent to Blackmore by Malcolm Boon, to search for a woman she's never met. With Malcolm looking over her shoulder from the sidelines, Clare's instincts are drawn from her own flight from an abusive marriage she felt certain would end in her death. Clare confronts a town devastated by the closing of its coalmine, the influx of drugs that followed, and riven by the bad blood between Shayna's friends, neighbours, and family. Despite it all, she fits in to Blackmore almost too well, befriending Shayna's mother, charming her ex-husband, and embroiling herself in the same destructive world that spelled disaster for Shayna. Just as she seems to find her footing, the past she thought she had diverted returns, and a whole new level of torment rushes in.
