Aboriginal people live on the threshold of two worlds – one of everyday reality and the other of spirits, demons and entities.

KILL ME THREE TIMES

Alice set out to explore the beautiful beaches of Australia and along the way stumbled into Eagle's Nest, a sun-drenched remote coastal town, and fell in love with Jack, the wealthy owner of a local bar. Their marriage quickly deteriorated and when we pick up the story Alice is having an affair with a young surfer. Alice becomes the thread that binds three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge when Jack hires Charlie, a mercurial assassin. But there is more than one person gunning for Alice. An unexpected threat comes from the hands of Nathan, an unassuming dentist attempting to pay off his gambling debts through a risky life insurance scam, whilst a small town Lady Macbeth masterminds the scheme. A corrupt cop also tries to get his cut while Alice's love interest hopes to rescue the young woman from the assassin's telescopic sights.
