MEET THE CAST
The most popular girl at school has disappeared prompting a lockdown in the suburb of Pleasant Lakes. Fear and hysteria grips the community. But all is not what it seems as two girls form an unlikely connection and collude in the construction of a gigantic lie.
Laura is an awkward eleven year old suffering the pain of growing up different in a brand new housing estate where everyone appears to think and act the same. The outward appearances of suburbia's security and normality are a flimsy disguise for the sadness and suffering that Laura knows exists in the world.
Frustrated by her anonymity, Laura desires the attention and fame that notoriety can bring her. In a world that thrives on lies, half-truths and dishonesty, Laura finds it easy to invent a tale that places her at the centre of media attention over the suspected abduction of Catriona Dijon, the daughter of a successful property developer. As the search for Catriona intensifies, Laura desperately tries to prevent the truth from being uncovered sending her deeper and deeper into a mess she may not escape from.
