Safe Harbour (2018, Phoebe Tonkin, Ewen Leslie, 



In four part Australian drama Safe Harbour, on a yachting holiday from Darwin to Indonesia, five Australians come across a broken-down fishing boat, full of desperate asylum seekers. The Australians decide to help, towing the refugees, but when they wake the next morning the fishing boat is gone.

Five years later, they meet some of the refugees again and learn the truth. Someone cut the rope between the two boats and, as a result, seven people died when the fishing boat sank. The revelation drives a wedge of mistrust between the Australians, as they grapple with protecting themselves and doing the right thing. The refugees struggle with their desire for justice and, possibly, revenge.

Old secrets come to light, relationships are shattered and lives are put in danger. And one question hangs over it all – who cut the rope?

The Australians are found to have no case to answer but cannot feel relieved, as they continue to struggle with all of the after-effects. Ismail seeks revenge, which backfires, and the truth comes out.

The truth leads to a life in danger, as Ismail – blinded by grief – tries to get retribution, leading to a final confrontation and the possibility of new beginnings.

Helen, feeling helpless, offers to represent Bilal in court – he reluctantly agrees.
