Black WaterDirected by: Andrew Traucki & David Nerlich
Three young holidaymakers take a fishing tour in Northern Australia.
As they drift into a mangrove swamp their boat is suddenly capsized and their tour guide disappears. Realising they have been attacked by a crocodile they swim for the nearest tree in a flooded mangrove swamp.
To survive they must elude the crocodile and reclaim their overturned boat.
