What if someone you love vanished without a trace?
A young boy is separated from his mother and goes missing in Disneyland. Adrift in the artificial world of giant mice and noisy parades, nobody can account for what happened in the seven frantic hours before he’s found.
Years later his life seems normal; stable; happy. But something about that day haunts him. Something about that day remains unresolved. And then, he disappears again…
Colder explores the infinite unknowns surrounding missing persons and the fog of purgatory that engulfs those left behind.
How do you grieve someone’s loss when your only hope is their return?
Colder won the R.E Ross Trust Award and was short-listed for the 2007 Griffin Award. A unique Sydney story, Colder makes its Australian premiere at the Stables.
