After a 10-year drought, tensions reach a breaking point in the small Australian farming town of Paringa when a mysterious disease begins to ravage the local sheep. Tough-minded veterinarian Kate McDonald (Rachel Ward, The Thorn Birds) struggles to save her community with the help of a feisty new assistant (Victoria Thaine, The Caterpillar Wish) - who is just as determined to unlock the mysteries of Kate's past. Hostility and hope, determination and despair mix in equal measure in this combustible six-part series.
Filmed entirely on location in a natural rain shadow region in the Adelaide Hills, Rain Shadow features stunningly stark vistas, parched skies, and a spare but hauntingly beautiful soundtrack. Exceptional performances by acclaimed actress Rachel Ward and up-and-coming star Victoria Thaine bring poignancy and intensity to a drama that pits two strong women against the odds and, just as frequently, against each other.
