Cole and Sky, a young couple, are driving in a classic car from the coast into the guts of the country. Cole’s father is ill and Sky is due a holiday after climbing the corporate ladder.
They set out with unbridled enthusiasm for the road ahead; swept up in romantic dreaming and poetic ruminations amid the boundless plains. They knit new narratives for themselves; give themselves new names and identities in sync with their seemingly unanimous versions of utopia. Their newfound freedom is underscored by a long-forgotten mix tape buried deep in the glovebox, but out of the static following the final song, comes a blast from the past.
Equal parts Mad Max, Evil Angels, and Wolf Creek, Horizon keeps who we are in the rearview mirror, whilst asking what it is we can see in the heat-distorted bitumen ahead.
