The Silent Country is a vast and beautiful wilderness, a place which holds secrets and stories that are rarely spoken. TV producer Veronica Anderson travels to the Northern Territory to retrace the journey of an expedition that had set out fifty years earlier to film the outback, but which ended mysteriously.
Of the group, led by the eccentric Maxim Topov, few are still alive and they are reluctant to talk about the intriguing events.
It is through the help of local N.T. environmentalist, Jamie McIntosh, that Veronica begins to piece together the puzzle and discover the answers.
These answers break the silence and change her life.
