Looking for Grace / Sue Brooks

Grace, 16, runs away from home. Her parents, Dan and Denise, head off on the road to cross the Western Australian wheat belt with a retired detective, Norris, to try and get her back. But life unravels faster than they can put it back together. Grace, Dan and Denise learn that life is confusing and arbitrary, but wonderful. A film about how we make sense of the mess of our lives and what it all means. It is a wry drama about lies, secrets, small and large griefs and love.
