From the Darkness, written by Steven Oliver, is the story of an Australian Indigenous family who are trying to hold their lives together whilst they deal with the tragic suicide death of a family member.
Due to the family tragedy, family members have become extremely emotionally disconnected and struggle to hold together as a family.
Spiritual forces play a part in the overall disconnection felt by all the family members.
The raw emotion of the story was superbly portrayed by the cast however, at times, the dialogue became verbally violent and overwhelming.
The heavy thread of the story was lightened by very small intermittent bursts of comedy.
A story of fixing connections in this world so that it doesn’t disrupt what is beyond.
