A tense drama unfolds as the Wards prepare to abandon their lives, escaping a dire financial situation. After her mother’s death, ageing farming couple Kath and Matthew decide to run from the crippling debt that is anchored around their smallholding, to find a new life in the sun. Their ticket to paradise comes via Shepherd, a mysterious stranger who promises safe passage away from all their problems for the right fee. For weeks Kath and Matthew move forward with the plan but on departure day the couple has a last-minute change of heart. Suddenly the thwarted Shepherd turns violent, and a deadly game of cat and mouse plays out around the farm as they fight for everything they were about to abandon.
