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".
Most people like to hide from things. That retards the growth of the spirit, and pretty soon their mortal ears can't hear the soul flapping its wings, wanting to fly in the face of life. To dare! You understand? Well, you'll never be quite alive ...
When Sam and Ruby look at their reflections in the big window, Sam's face is partly shadowed in the reflection but when the shot is on him his face is fully lit with no shadows.
