When five women take part in a corporate hiking retreat only four come out on the other side.

As a result, Federal Agents Aaron Falk and Carmen Cooper head deep into the Victorian mountain ranges to investigate. The pair hope to find their whistle-blowing informant, Alice Russell, alive.

We are looking forward to watching Force of Nature in cinemas.

About the Film

The film is the sequel to the 2021 Australian box office hit The Dry.
