A BENT3LAND PRODUCTION
WRITTEN & DIRECTED BY BRETT DAVIS
PRODUCED BY HELEN MORRISON
In 1879, a lone Lieutenant, mans a haunted outpost in Moreton Bay (Beacon Hill)- a former brutal penal colony. Lt Henry Tasman, his wife and daughter lost at Sea, stands vigil at the forsaken fort, finding solace in his meaningless chores. As time passes, disturbing visions begin to distract Henry, until one day a mysterious boat floats ashore, rowed by several silent and gruesome convicts.
The last convict was transported to Moreton Bay some forty years ago…
These questions also puzzle a young research student, Melanie, completing her thesis in the year 1969, on the colonial outpost. On a stormy night she gathers her frivolous boyfriend Des, and his wealthy mother, Bonnie, at the ruins of Beacon Hill. Unbeknownst to the others, that night she plans to find answers to these questions-with the help of Henry’s uncovered journal and the ghosts she believes wander the dusty fort corridors…
