In a remote area of the Australian outback, a middle-aged piano teacher returns to his isolated and empty house. Suddenly, without warning or provocation, five masked intruders dressed in black grab him, tie him to a chair and force him to swallow a bottle of sleeping pills. They wait for him to lose consciousness and, leaving him for dead, get into their car and drive away. Having left a fake suicide note and erasing all traces of their presence, it seems like the perfect crime. But, of course, it’s not perfect at all – and when the best-laid plans start to go awry, the already tense proceedings get ratcheted up. Intriguing bits of information start to be revealed which answer the inevitable questions: Who are these marauders? And who, precisely, is their victim? Why are they doing this? And what, in their minds at least, could justify such an extreme act of murder ?
