Caroline Lee delivers a sensitive performance of Australian writer Ian Bone’s The Song of an Innocent Bystander. Freda is haunted by an incident that occurred 10 years earlier. At the age of nine, she entered a restaurant and found herself in a gunman hostage situation that lasted for 36 hours. Now, a newspaper reporter wants to uncover whether she was a victim, or something more. The search for the truth escalates, and Freda is forced to face the past, leading to a dramatic finale.
