    Maya de Jong is an 18-year-old country girl who moves to Melbourne and begins an affair with her new boss. When Maya's parents, Toni and Jacob, arrive for a visit, Maya is gone - no one knows where. Maya, for reasons of her own, leaves haunting clues in late-night calls to her brother at home, carefully avoiding detection by the two people who love her most. Ultimately, to find her daughter, Toni will have to revisit a part of her past that she thought she had shut off forever - the closest she ever came to being a lost girl herself.
