Ali (Ali Al Jenabi) is not a citizen. He drives a taxi using another man’s license and relies on the GPS to negotiate his way around a city he doesn’t know. His passenger, Esther (Imelda Bourke), can’t remember where she is going. She is angry because she has been stripped of everything that is familiar to her and she doesn't recognise the world anymore. They travel through the night in search of a vague destination while surveillance cameras mark their journey, coldly redacting the human element. What they are left with is their damage – she can’t remember and he cannot forget.
Directed by Madeleine Blackwell, DAMAGE is an Australian drama about undiscovered connections and how mere humanity can bond us all.
