Safe Harbour is a psychological thriller about a group of friends whose sailing holiday alters their lives forever after they cross paths with a struggling fishing boat overloaded with asylum seekers en-route to Australia.
The Australians decide to tow the refugees, but when they wake the next morning the fishing boat is gone. Five years later they learn that someone cut the rope between the two boats, with tragic consequences.
I’ve been in a bit of TV watching slump since The Crown and two episodes of Safe Harbour has pulled me out of it.
The four-part series from Matchbox Pictures stars Ewen Leslie (Top of the Lake: China Girl), Leeanna Walsman (Seven Types of Ambiguity), Joel Jackson, Phoebe Tonkin, Hazem Shammas and Jacqueline McKenzie.
