When Sam and her husband move to a remote mining camp in the desolate outback, she finds herself struggling to cope with the lonely existence. Eventually, she questions whether she is really alone.

Plains Empty infuses new life into the story of a restless spirit by setting the action in a deserted outback mining camp. When a woman is left alone on the edge of nowhere, she begins seeing visions of a ghostly young girl and starts seeking more information about her identity.

Punctuated with stunning landscape shots that emphasise Sam's sense of isolation, Beck Cole has put together a haunting and effective story.
