In an attempt to find a missing boy in the woods, an NBS news reporter and his cameraman embed themselves with a group of hunters before all goes awry.
Frank (Nick Barkla, The Secret Life of Us) meets Madaline (Laura Gordon, Saw V) at a cocktail party held at a World Bank conference. He's a foreign correspondent whose recent work in Mali has left him traumatised. As the erotic connection between Frank and Madaline deepens, each gradually reveal secrets from their past that could have deadly consequences.

Embedded is a ripped-from-the-headlines satire about the madness surrounding brave men and women on the front lines of a Middle East conflict. It skewers lapdog embedded journalists, scheming government officials and the media's insatiable desire for heroes. Beautifully captured (by 9 cameras) directly from the controversial Tim Robbins' play in New York City, Embedded Live puts the audience in the front-row to this thought-provoking and timely production.
Dave, a 20-something white guy from Brisbane moves in with Australian's most controversial Muslim figure Sheik Taj El Hilaly, in an attempt to discover what being Muslim is really like.
