Eight strangers are drawn to an impossible lake in the heart of the Mallee – connecting across cultures, across languages, across time.
Sea Lake, a tiny drought-stricken town in the heart of the Mallee, is dying. Out of nowhere, a busload of Chinese tourists turn up to take photos on the nearby salt lake. When the sun goes down, when the light is just right, the lake turns to ‘mirrorwater’ and it’s like you’re walking on sky.
Not far behind these unlikely visitors comes Kai, fleeing Melbourne, broken and adrift. As Kai begins to understand this strange new place, its cultures and stories start refracting through one another. With tenderness and humour, Mirror’s Edge explores the complexities of cross-cultural encounters.
