In the middle of the night Sarah’s phone rings. A woman she’s never met tells her to get online. Professor Song has disappeared. They have 24 hours to find him. What follows is a tense journey across Sydney, Seoul, Incheon, and into the mysterious place that is Cloudland. The 2 women leading each other on into a labyrinthine landscape of double lives, unanswered questions, digressions and odd coincidences. Is it real life or its virtual shadow? Have Sarah and Hae-mi got embroiled in some kind of arcane spy plot? Or are they playing a strange, immersive game?

Not available to download, sadly. Not sure why it isn’t—maybe the various unions and guilds haven’t reached an agreement with the ABC? Would be great if they did so dramas could, like features, be downloaded.
