Australian novelist Robert Carter adapted and directed his own novel for this low-budget Australian drama about a teen in therapy. Loner Harris Berne (Matt Day), age 17, develops a crush on divorced Helen (Rhondda Findleton) while baby-sitting her two children. But during play one day, the little girl hides in a refrigerator and dies. Harris is sent to a halfway house where he encounters incest victim Angela (Michela Noonan), mute by choice, and psychiatrist Sam Lejeune (John Waters), who helps Harris come to grips with his problems. Shown at the 1998 Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
