Just hours before her scheduled interview with Detective Angelo Rosetta (Luke Jacobz) about the murder of her dad, Ross, teenager Bella confesses ALL to her boyfriend, Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox Reo)...

Nikau reels from the SHOCK revelation that it was Bella's policeman brother, Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) who shot dead Ross!

Colby and best buddy, Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) buried Ross' dead body out in the bush.

Worried she will somehow expose Colby's killer secret to Angelo under questioning, Bella decides to go on the run with Nikau!
