Movie Info

In this thriller, set in Sydney Australia's Palm Beach (which is to Sydney what Malibu is to Los Angeles), the lives of four hard-pressed individuals briefly become interwoven. Paul Kite (Bryan Brown) has been out of work for some time. While at a sociable party, he quietly pockets a handgun he finds there. Later, he bungles the robbery of a supermarket, killing a policeman in the process, and goes into hiding in some caves. Leilani Adams (Amanda Berry) is a sexually adventurous girl who has run away from home. She is being sought by private detective Larry Kent (John Flaus), a relic of the 1950s. Finally, Joe Ryan (Ken Brown) is trying to pay off a debt and put together a drug deal, without a lot of success. In one fashion or another, they all meet in Palm Beach. Some may find the strong Australian regional speech patterns in this film difficult to understand. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
