This is a furiously dark physical comedy of death, loyalty and friendship. Mike and DJ, hired killers by trade, bludgeon, stab and shoot their way across Western Australia in search of the elusive Harry, gangland associate and target. Part homage to the British gangster movie, part Shakespearean tragedy, the blunt and blackly funny 'Mercy Thieves' melds cinematic and theatrical traditions in this wild road trip tale. (3 male, 1 female).
