Director: John Curran

When Scout is discovered after two days missing, she is determined to find Hedwig but shocked to realise she is under investigation herself. Meanwhile, a young couple fighting to save their twisted relationship, is revealed to have crossed paths with Hedwig on the night she vanished.

We open back on the fiight that brought Scout home but this time we’re across the aisle of the plane with Cora and Damian, a thirtysomething couple who’ve come from Sydney on holiday. They’ve rented a luxurious AirBnB and have enough expendable income to enjoy themselves but none of that will be enough to paper over the cracks in their relationship. When Cora orders in some drugs from a local dealer, the pair meet Hedwig and what begins as a fiirty proposition sets in motion a chain of events that will leave their relationship scorched and both riven with guilt for their part in Hedwig’s night. Meanwhile in the present, Scout is found by the search party, leaving Hedwig still missing. During a gruelling interrogation by Drysdale, Scout realises she’s regarded with suspicion by the police — who want to know more about the fight than Scout can remember — and even doubted by her own mother. When Scout joins the next search party for Hedwig, she’s shunned by her former school friends but discovers Cora, who she remembers from the party at Andy Dolan’s, lurking in the forest. Despite Scout’s pleading, Cora denies knowing anything about Hedwig’s disappearance but their encounter is interrupted when a car is pulled from the lake — full of Hedwig’s possessions and a large quantity of drugs. Later that night, Scout receives a mysterious text message from Hedwig: “I’m so sorry, Beastie. Let me go.”
