The Screen Guide

Having spent most of his professional life wandering the globe in search of paradise, travel writer and prodigal son, Art Watkins (Richard Roxburgh), rushes home, too late to be by his dying mother's bedside. Hoping to pay his last respects and escape the run down tropical resort - the scene of his misspent youth - a twist in the tale traps him out at the Far Out East. There he has to face his bitter brother, his childhood sweetheart, and a teenage son he hardly knows. Thanks to his mother's posthumous attempt to reunite her scattered family, Art discovers that his best chance of happiness is the 'paradise lost' he left behind.
