The disappearance of a father and son in a tropical Australian bayou of crocodiles and mangrove swamps unravels a dynastic alliance between formidable fishing clans. 

In the fearless hands of Emmy® Award-nominated filmmakers, Michael Ware and Justine A. Rosenthal (Only the Dead), Revealed: The Cape journeys into the 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.

Director Michael Ware said: ‘Collaborating with Stan empowered us to keep alive the memories of a missing father and his 10-year-old son and to keep questioning those surrounding an unending mystery that haunts Far North Queensland. And to do so as a film, with meaning and a sense of cinema, that we’ve always hoped brings a unique sensibility to the tragedy of a disappearance almost intentionally forgotten.’

Director Justine A. Rosenthal said: ‘There is so much yet to know, so much unanswered about the events swirling about the morning Bevin and Brad Simmonds vanished off the face of the earth. We hope this film carries their story onwards and brings new vision to an agony that still scars one of Australia’s most rugged, remote, and virtually lawless regions.’
