Rights Information

“Robert Jackson, a wealthy sheep farmer, uses power and domination to rule both his farm and his family. He covets three things in his possession; his stags, his guns and his daughter, Cathy. Itinerant shepherd, Peter Daley, accepting employment on the farm, finds himself drawn into a sinister, domestic dilemma. What Daley doesn't know is that Cathy is being sexually abused by her father and is powerless to escape. Torn with the confusion of guilt and fear, she remains in this destructive situation to nurse her paralysed mother, the victim of a stroke.” - New Zealand Film Commission; www.nzfilm.co.nz/film/heart-of-the-stag; 31/01/2014.
