And that's how Mary died

Susan's father used to tell her bedtime stories. Now he's long dead, but the stories remain. And they're getting darker.

A “Peter Ravlich & Lisa Wong Ravlich” FILM
WRITTEN BY Peter Ravlich

Susan has struggled with insomnia since she was a little girl, thanks to her father's gruesome bedtime stories. Years later, she thinks she has put the memories to rest. But they are just waking up.

On losing her high-powered job to redundancy, Susan returns to her abandoned family home in the Waikato and tries to find herself. What she finds instead is a series of baffling and disturbing events that challenge her sanity and force her to explore the repressed horrors of her past.
