Healing is a new Australian drama set inside Won Wron, a low security prison for inmates who are on the verge of being released. A new arrival at the prison is Viktor Kahdem (played by Don Hany), a man who has almost given up on life. Case Worker Matt Perry (Hugo Weaving) has established a unique program to rehabilitate broken men through giving them the responsibility for the rehabilitation of injured raptors – beautiful, fearsome proud eagles, falcons and owls. Against all odds, Matt takes on Viktor as his number one test case, introducing him to Yasmine, the majestic wedge tailed eagle with a 2 metre wingspan. If these two can tame each other, anything is possible.
For his Movies at dusk program on 3WBC 94.1FM, Greg sat down with the director Craig Monahan for this interview
