A story of two brothers on a trail of revenge.

Queensland, 1885.

It is a scorching day in Australia’s deserted outback when Tommy McBride and his brother, Billy, return home to discover a devastating tragedy. Distraught and eager for revenge, the young men set out in search of the perpetrators.

They are soon forced to seek help from their ruthless neighbour John Sullivan, and the Queensland Native Police – an armed militia infamous for hunting down Indigenous Australians.

The retribution that follows will embroil the brothers in a heartbreaking injustice, uniting them in a battle for survival, and forever tearing them apart.
