This dark thriller tells of the violent formation of the nation of Australia. In 1825 Tasmania, Clare, an Irish convict and new mother is hell-bent on revenge following a brutal assault by Lieutenant Hawkins, a particularly cruel army commander. Clare employs Aboriginal tracker Billy, for whom violence by the English has been long-present, and they pursue Hawkins in their uneasy pact through bushland towards the town of Launceston. Aisling Franciosi as Clare embodies the rageful howl of hidden histories. This driven, diamond-hard film will sear your soul.
