In director Gaylene Preston genre-bending tale, Meg (Heather Bolton) moves from her parents’ place into a flat and buys a stylish old Jaguar in a drive to be more independent. While driving on a country road, she hears screams in the back – but there's no one there. When she picks up a woman in the rain, she recognises her from a dream. She discovers that this woman was the car's previous owner and she's missing... Now her killer might just be stalking Meg too ... Preston and producer Robin Laing rented out city cinemas, in order to prove their first movie had an audience.
The queues were so long they went right around the corner and around the block so we'd race down there and help sell the ice creams to speed things up.– Director Gaylene Preston, on screening Mr Wrong at Wellington's Paramount Cinema, Dominion Post, February 2014
