  • Production

    The film was funded by the Nilsen group in Melbourne who had invested in BMX Bandits (1983).

    Trenchard-Smith said he identified with the "human tragedy" of the story where a man came home and lost his step daughter overnight.

    One important element in the film is commitment to family and children, as opposed to individual selfishness and the fear of loss of freedom. I was trying to show that the narcissism of the seventies can put a family into a private hell. The seventies had a trade-it-in, throw-it-away attitude towards relationships: if they don't work out, move on. Well, there's a price to pay for moving on when children are involved: you irrevocably damage their lives. And I'm suggesting that in Australia, where has been a 40% failure rate in marriages, there has been a fairly flippant attitude that hasn't really been thought through.

    The original script was written by experienced TV writer Judith Colquhoun. Trenchard Smith wanted to "give the story more style" and "make the characters more sophisticated and the feeling more upmarket" but Colquhoun refused to make the changes so the director brought in Warwick Hinds to rewrite. He then cut six pages, rewrote some scenes and wrote two new scenes of his own. Shooting started on 11 March 1985.

    Reception

    The film was not widely seen, although it screened on Channel Seven. Trenchard Smith later said, "I am fond of the picture, a little florid and melodramatic perhaps, but I wanted to push the conventions of the "weepie."
