Having grown up with her mother in Nevada, Heidi (Rachael Taylor) hasn't spoken to her father since she was seven. Now a young woman, haunted by his memory, she returns to Australia seeking closure. Travelling to her hometown on a shoestring, Heidi is forced to hitch-hike and busk for cash. Her talent on the violin gains the attention of handsome orange grove owner Michael (Alex Dimitriades), who offers Heidi a ride. Both are initially guarded, but an unexpected connection soon blossoms. Fleeing to Michael's orange grove after a family reunion turns sour, Heidi finds the escape and camaraderie she craves. Whilst Michael seems conflicted over Heidi's presence, it's picking season and he is soon immersed in the colourful surrounds and offbeat characters of the arriving citrus pickers. However, when Heidi drops her guard and reveals her feelings, Michael struggles to reciprocate, his wit and charm masking a tortured soul. As the past unravels, Michael and Heidi are forced to confront the future, discovering that their lives and secrets are better shared.

  • My husband is in hospital and I found this movie just what I needed to have a good relax. I loved it maybe for some not much in it but I thought it to be a great movie...I loved it.

  • A really great Aussie movie. Enjoyed it, recommend it.

  • Well acted and shot but the plot and pacing are a let down.

  • Another good aussie movie. Was a bit puzzled on how the "Summer Coda" piece of music tied in with the the movie though........

  • Very enjoyable story with some surprises. Humour and depth combined very successfully. I loved the unusual mix of both main characters and what a relief that we don't have to endure long lovemaking scenes, which should be classified as soft porn! Very satisfying viewing for those who love a little bit of romance thrown in the mix!
