The Screen Guide

Set in 1956 amid the backdrop of the British nuclear tests in the remote Australian desert, this is a story about our infinite capacity for betrayal. Not just betrayal on an intelligence of geo-political level, but betrayal on an elemental level. And no-one is immune. Not even the betrayers themselves.
