The Screen Guide

Jack's expatriate life in remote Papua New Guinea is violently disrupted by the death of his beloved wife Rose. Much later, during a business trip to Melbourne, he meets Kate, a writer of romance novels, and passionately in love they return to the jungle together. All would be well except for Jack's growing obsession with Kate as he fantasises that she is his dead wife. Unravelling the dark secrets surrounding the death of Rose, Kate soon begins to fear for her life. A haunting romance noir about obsessive desire and unrelenting guilt.
