In a remote forest, an aspiring actress immerses herself in the spiritual world of the Yowie to scare others and herself into living.
Based on the short story by Laura van den Berg,
‘Where We Must Be’ from her collection ‘What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us’
Deep in the Eaglehawk forest, aspiring actress Eve impersonates Australia’s own Bigfoot – the Yowie. Employed by Yowie expert Frank, Eve spends her days ambushing thrill seekers and giving hope to the believers. She immerses herself in the world of her character, determined to pursue her craft. As her obsession with her disguise deepens, so does Frank’s desire for her. A developing relationship with caravan park neighbour Jimmy rattles Eve, and when Frank presents an unusual request from a client, Eve embraces the opportunity to keep her dreams alive.
