Two families spend a day at the beach. The women's friendship is confirmed by a revealing incident that has repercussions
The Beach captures the drama and poignancy of a single event wherein reality shifts and people are changed forever in a fundamental way.
Although this is a first film from director Dorthe Scheffmann, The Beach has a proffessional polish which betrays a long immersion in the filmmaking process. Dorthe Scheffmann began her career as a production assistant on New Zealand feature, Sleeping Dogs.
