Extraordinary footage of orbs in the skies of the Blue Mountains raises questions over the unexplained disappearance of the filmmaker who recorded them.

For over 10 years beginning in the 1980s, Frances Wright shot mysterious orbs of light darting about the open skies near her isolated cottage, located in the scenic Blue Mountains region outside Sydney. Now, for the first time, this film discloses some of her extraordinary super-8 footage from that period. But newly discovered digital footage – unearthed after she inexplicably vanished – raises a bigger question: do we believe what we see, or do we see what we believe?
