Tammy Davis as the mysterious Luke.

Davis plays Luke, the mysterious leader of an isolated community, The Followers of the Light. 

The Followers live deep in the native bush, away from civilisation and electricity. The residents believe that the outside world represents darkness.

Drew and Boyd are camping in the wilderness, when their trip takes an unexpected turn. Two teenage runaways from the commune stumble across their campsite, needing urgent medical help.

They accompany the youngsters back to their village, where they have to perform emergency surgery. 

Drew and Boyd have a bad feeling about the place. Luke seems overbearing, and there’s a sense of underlying danger. 

There’s obviously more to Luke than meets the eye, and rumours are he’ll have a connection to a long-standing, beloved Shorty character.
