Like Minds
Available on Tubi TV, Plex
After the shotgun death of schoolboy Nigel Colby, seventeen-year-old roommate Alex Forbes is placed in a juvenile remand centre. With mounting pressure from Alex’s influential father to have the murder charges dropped, Detective McKenzie appoints forensic psychologist Sally Rowe to determine if there is sufficient evidence to find Alex culpable. Sally begins to unravel the truth behind Nigel’s death… High achievers, Alex and Nigel, are reluctant roommates in a privileged, public boarding school. In an attempt to understand Nigel’s peculiar behaviour, (a morbid fascination with all things dead), Alex enters his macabre world and is drawn into a psychological game. Each boy vying to control the other’s mind, together they plunge headlong into a spellbinding world of dark secrets and deadly mind games. Sally endeavours to verify Alex’s disturbing story. In doing so she discovers that even though dead, Nigel’s psychological effect on Alex has far from diminished. In true ‘Gestalt’ fashion, two minds may well have become one.
