A man returns to Victoria, Australia, where he grew up, and encounters a mysterious woman who reminds him of someone he once knew.
The title is taken from the last line of the 1917 poem 'The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock' by T.S. Eliot. It reads: "Till human voices wake us and we drown".
If moths are attracted to the light, why don't they come out in the day?
Young Sam Franks: ...guess in the day, light comes to them.
Sam's father has a plaque outside his surgery noting him as an 'M.D.'. In Australia, doctors receive the post-nominals 'M.B., B.S.' (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery). A doctor with a M.D. has received a much higher degree and is unlikely to be practising as a General Practitioner.
