Revealed: The Cape is the story of rival fishing families who built empires amongst the twisted mangroves in Far North Queensland. The isolation, an all-consuming sexual obsession and a series of small choices leads to a suspected double murder of Brad and Bevin Simmonds.

Emmy® Award-nominated filmmakers, Michael Ware and Justine A. Rosenthal take us on a journey into Australia's Deep North and the human psyche to uncover what we’re capable of when our humanity is stripped bare in this fascinating portrayal of an insular and isolated community.

Written and directed by Justine A. Rosenthal and Michael Ware, Revealed: The Cape is produced by Richard Finlayson (Stuff the British Stole, Waltzing the Dragon with Benjamin Law), with executive producer Jude Troy (Mother and Son, The Clearing, Stan Original SeriesThe Other Guy) and associate producer Alexandra Cameron (The Clearing, Mother and Son) of Wooden Horse.
