RETURN
A visually haunting film, set at the foot of the Australian ski fields, Somersault is the story of a young girl's sensory journey, through which she learns the true meaning of love, family and friendship. Living with her young single mother, sixteen-year old Heidi (Abbie Cornish), starved of true affection, looks to short-lived sexual encounters for the physical and emotional contact she craves. A confrontation with her mother is the catalyst for Heidi leaving home and fleeing to the snow resort town of Lake Jindabyne. Once there, she contacts a previous fling but is left to fend for herself with little money and no job. In between searching for work, Heidi explores the countryside, finding solace in the startling natural beauty around her. A chance encounter with Joe (Sam Worthington), the son of a wealthy local farmer leads to a developing relationship in all its complexity.
