Plot Overview

A sex-filled event following a fundraiser results in the death of a helper. The hosts, the Greenbornes, are powerful media moguls who make sure to cover it all up. Dominic, who's hounded by persistent rumours that he's going to run for Premier, has to handle the incident by walking a tight-rope between uncompromising morality and political advantage.


Arc Advancement


  • The film does not resolve any of the plot threads left dangling at the end of the series. All that can be surmised is that Manning suffered no real significant (if any) legal ramifications as the result of his battle with Pacific Com. We also learn that in addition to the safe injection site, his red light district is still up and running.
  • The timing of the film is unspecified, but takes place some time after the end of the series. The most likely period is a year. This can be surmised by Jacobs's comment about having another year in his contract left. It was established he had a four year contract and Dominic would have a three year mayoral term.


  • Dominic and Jacobs are shown to be be genuinely friendly to each other, much more than since Dominic became mayor.
  • Dominic considers running for Premier.



The Show

  • Ian Tracey does not appear, making Nicholas Campbell the only mainstay throughout the entire franchise.
  • This also marks the only total absence of the entire Coroner's Office.
  • Terry Chen played William Chen in Da Vinci's Inquest
