1825, the penal colony of Van Diemen's Land, or present-day Tasmania. Irish convict Clare Carroll (Aisling Franciosi – The Fall, Game of Thrones) works as a servant for the British Colonial force detachment led by Colonel Hawkins (Sam Claflin – The Hunger Games, Peaky Blinders).
But when unwanted advances result in a brutal, humiliating attack, Clare is dead set on revenge. Teaming up with Aboriginal tracker Billy (Baykali Ganambarr – The Furnace), the pair must put aside their differences to achieve their bloody vengeance.
Steeped in the horrors of Australian history, this unflinching tale refuses to soften its often-brutal message, but is a testament to determination, bravery and above all, hope.
