Suddenly tremours beome jolts, jolts become creaks and groans...

When you're digging up the past, how deep should you go?

Author Elizabeth Knox collaborated with Neil Pardington on the screenplay for this low-dialogue short that screened as part of a showcase of New Zealand films at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival.
