After an epidemic spreads all over Australia, a father searches for someone willing to protect his daughter.
It was always the production team's intention to make a film that connected with international audiences. As producer Samantha Jennings put it: "We've always from the outset conceived this as an international film. We really want to tell international stories. For us it's very important that it fulfills its genre and it can meet the expectations of its recognizable audience. But at the same time, it will appeal to a more sophisticated, more adult audience who may want to go to the cinema to engage with things about the world we are in, and the intensity of the emotional experience that they want to go to the cinema for. And this is about a man who is a father, who is thrown into a situation that is life and death, and how he deals with that. I guess it's the combination of knowing its genre and fulfilling that and at the same time offering a deeper experience for a more adult audience as well."
