Richard Chamberlain stars as Australian lawyer David Burton, who takes on the defense of a group of aborigines accused of killing one of their own. He suspects the victim has been killed for violating a tribal taboo, but the defendants deny any tribal association.

Determined to break their silence and discover the truth behind the hidden society he suspects lives in his city, the Lawyer is drawn further, and more intimately, into a prophesy that threatens a new Armageddon, wherein all the continent shall drown i.e. 'The Last Wave'

A startling and mesmerizing Australian film about aborigines, nature, and dreamtime - from acclaimed director Peter Weir (The Truman Show, Master and Commander, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Dead Poets Society)
