Australia 1929. After killing a white man in self-defense, an Aboriginal man flees into the outback to outlast a dogged chase from the law. A period western set on the Northern Territory frontier where justice itself is put on trial.
“It's deliberately paced yet rewards patience, building to a resolution that's both harrowing and heartbreaking.”
“Gorgeously shot and patiently paced, the tension and drama is punctuated by moments of humour and grace, all soundtracked by the sounds of the native environment rather than a traditional cinematic score.”
“In a film striking for its absence of background music, the story is told through natural ambient sounds and some glorious cinematography.”
