Oliver and Elsie are waiting.
They’re going home to the family they haven’t seen in years. Between deadly boredom and unbearable heat, they begin to see the smoke. Then comes the evacuation announcement. They’ve heard it too many times. Bushfires. As the smell of fire fills the air, they know all too well what can happen…what happened last time.
“Think about it. They could have stayed for us… they could’ve gotten through it. But they didn’t. We weren’t enough for them.”
Hailing from rural New South Wales, Where There’s Smoke is an exploration of contemporary Australian storytelling looking at a family devastated by a tragic loss, and a brother and sister in a new fight for survival.
