A career thug and his junior partner in crime take a late night train from Perth to Fremantle, menacing passengers along the way. For an hour they own the train. Riding the uneasy line between comedy and terror, THE RETURN is an incisive, edgy and at times funny look at the cultural divides in Australian society. It is a tautly written study in peer pressure, anxiety and suppressed violence in a class most people assume has no voice. (3 male, 2 female).
