Leigh has gone missing, we watch the days that built up to his disappearance through the thoughts of Emily as she sits nervously in a police station. As they wait, she thinks about the nature of violence, morality and fate. Maybe it is all just natural?

Director's Bio: James Gorter is a filmmaker originally from New Zealand. He has lived and worked on films in the UK but moved to Melbourne to complete his Masters in Film and Television at Victoria College of the Arts. His background in the punk scenes in New Zealand and London and his undergraduate studies in Fine Art heavily influence the films he creates, they tend to be considered and visual takes on raw, street-level subject matter.
