Cora dreams of escaping the island and running away to the bright lights of Brisbane. Inspired by the young girl, Bradley starts to paint naked portraits of her. To Cora, it's an innocent way to earn money... and finally escape the island. To him, Cora is a fresh source of artistic inspiration. Others, though, may see their relationship differently...
