Everything Looks Beautiful


Everything Looks Beautiful is set in the 1970s and shows the perspective of a child in the midst of a turbulent family life.

In the film, a father and mother agree that the father can take his daughter south to a beach-side camp for a long weekend. They end up on a road trip, a very long drive, around 3,000 kms further north.

Her dad buys her a bag of mixed lollies and a new denim outfit. Her grandma is there as well, with whom she spends some nurturing time.

Meanwhile her mum is distraught and seeks custody and police support. A nationwide search ends months later.
