A smart-mouthed, pregnant suburban brat and a disillusioned computer genius with a live hand grenade in his pocket embark on a strange odyssey of love and self-discovery and together. A quintessential Hartley love match, with bristly characters trying to learn to love each other amidst the oddball humor of their environments.

Trust took top prizes at the Houston, Sundance, and Deauville Film Festivals and with the Australian Film Critics Circle.
