About the Show Less...

A classic tale of love, deceit and revenge set in the hot-house atmosphere of the old colonial Far East. Read More >

Set in the heat of a Malaysian rubber plantation, a local playboy is murdered during the night by a planter’s wife. When she claims she was acting in self-defence, the ex-pat community closes ranks and her trusting husband hires a family friend to defend her. But then a mysterious letter comes to light, casting doubt on her integrity, and things begin to fall apart.
