The Unusual Suspects – 2021

A friendship worth more than diamonds - 4 x 52'


When a $16 million necklace is taken from self-made businesswoman Roxanne Waters’ home in an elaborate heist, the ensuing police investigation exposes cracks in Eastern Sydney’s sparkling façade.

With the stakes higher than ever, can the masterminds stop themselves from turning on each other, or will they discover a friendship worth more than diamonds?

Why we like it:

THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS is a highly entertaining tale of empowerment and a celebration of women’s friendship across social divides.
