Starring Kazuya Wright, Peita McCulloch, Darren Taylor and Barbara Baugh. Written & Directed by Jason Kempnich.

Stewart (Kazuya Wright) and Hannah (Peita McCulloch) were your typical young couple searching for their dream home until a freak encounter at an old house saw a long expired life flash before Stewart's eyes, as if it were his own. 

Violent, unpredictable memories and a hauntingly familiar face (Darren Taylor) drive Stewart to solve this mystery for the sake of his own sanity. 

"Unfinished Business" explores the consequences of an ill deed, seemingly long forgotten.

Unfinished Business is set simultaneously in modern Australia and in 1945 immediately after World War II.  It explores a returning soldier's life, ruined by the actions of a once trusted friend, in what was to become a common scenario for all too many returning Diggers: life had moved on without them.

Shot and produced in Brisbane, Queensland Australia, "Unfinished Business" is Yarnmaker's first in-house production.  Running at 7:50, this short film is currently available for use by film festivals, special events, distributors and broadcasters in most markets.
