Rip Under The Pines (in development)
A Feature Film
In a regional mountain town an eccentric elderly resident in urgent need of medical attention is missing and the only clues to his whereabouts are a broken television screen, a missing vial of morphine and fronds from a strange pine tree that nobody has seen before. To solve the mystery, a group of traumatised paramedics must face their own demons to save him in time. The film explores themes of trauma, loneliness and toxic work cultures while paying tribute to frontline workers who sometimes sacrifice their own mental health to save others.
