Based on Jane Harper’s bestseller, this riveting Aussie mystery stars Eric Bana as Aaron, a big-city investigator burrowing into a brutal murder-suicide involving a childhood friend. As he delves into the case, Aaron uncovers dark secrets that his drought-stricken, rural hometown would rather keep hidden. Skeletons in his own closet rattle as his questions lead back to his own past and a young woman’s mysterious drowning.
