Luna Gale

Date: 9 Aug 2018

When experienced social worker Caroline Cox is assigned to navigate the case of a neglected child, the question of who is best suited to look after baby Luna seems to have a simple answer.

Her troubled 19-year-old parents appear incapable of even taking care of themselves, while her grandmother wants to raise her with the support of her church.

But will Caroline’s personal and professional history cloud her judgement?

As she tangles herself in complex family dynamics, will she risk her career for the sake of a child?

Writer Rebecca Gilman tackles the thorny issues head-on, exploring what it takes to protect a child – and whether it’s possible for someone to be completely healed from past trauma.

Susanna Dowling directs. Michelle Doake, Lucy Heffernan, Georgie Parker, Scott Sheridan, Ebony Vagulans, Jacob Warner and David Whitney feature.
