Harry and Miles' dad, an abalone diver, disappears with his grief into the deep waters of Tasmania’s wild south coast. The 15-year-old Miles is left to care for Harry, who’s just 10 years old. Soon, the bonds anchoring the family become frayed.

Adapted by playwright Julian Larnach from Favel Parrett’s award-winning debut novel and directed by Ben Winspear, Past the Shallows sees the roiling sea beyond the shoreline becoming a metaphor for the turmoil that accompanies incalculable loss. Together the family rides rogue waves of violent masculinity; and the tender swells of brotherhood that might just carry them home.
