    Orphaned 14 year-old Cody (Henry Thomas, E.T the Extra-terrestrial) is a typical boy with an adventurous spirit and imagination to match. Living with his guardian Gaza (Tony Barry, Mystery Road) in an outback Australian township, Cody learns of an ancient Aboriginal myth known as ‘Donkegin’, sparking an interest that will not let him rest. Convinced there is an underwater monster in a nearby dam, Cody and his close friend Wendy (Rachel Friend, Golden Fiddles) embark on a journey that will take them into the very shadow-land of mystery and intrigue. An atmospheric 80s adventure tale, inspired by the likes of The Goonies and E.T, written by Everett DeRoche (Patrick, Road Games) and directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith (BMX Bandits, Dead End Drive-In), Frog Dreaming (also known as The Quest and The Go-Kids) captures the infectious spirit of childhood determination and discovery.
