Summary
"Set at the turn of the twentieth century [the film] concerns a small group of students from an all-female college who vanish, along with a chaperone, while on a St. Valentine's Day outing. Less a mystery than a journey into the mystic, as well as an inquiry into issues of class and sexual repression in Australian society"--Container
