On the side of a rural highway, a bizarre encounter with a Metalhead who sings nursery rhymes takes a profound turn.

Part of the short film program “Australian Short Film Today“ on Saturday, 28 September 2019, at 3:45pm. 


Australian actress Sara West was the first performer to be confirmed in the role of “Metalhead Girl” before director Tom Noakes and the Production Team set about on a two-month search for our lead “Metalhead” boy. This search culminated in the discovery of Toby Wallace, an extraordinary young Australian actor who recently won the role made famous by Russell Crow in the remake of the Australian classic Romper Stomper for Australian television.
