Monkey Puzzle follows five intrepid twenty-somethings who set off on an adventure into New South Wales' Blue Mountains in search of the world's rarest tree, the wollemi pine or 'monkey puzzle' tree. After abseiling down into the rainforest gorges, a series of mishaps delay their adventure and tensions in the group surface quickly. As the friends become engulfed by the harsh terrain, they must face up to their most personal secrets and fears on a journey which will test their perceptions of friendship, intimacy and the nature of their pasts. Directed by first-time feature director Mark Forstmann, this all-Australian production features some of the nation's top young actors.
