Noise / Matthew Saville

Suffering from tinnitus (a chronic hearing problem), Graham McGahan, a young cop, is sent by his boss to stake out a suburban shopping strip, after violent murders rock the local community. He starts to engage with the traumatised members of the local community and he learns to come to grips with his role as a cop and a man. But terror has a way of finding the most vulnerable amongst us. Noise deals with the response of an ordinary young man to the challenge posed when a community is affected by tragic events.
