Mick, an English backpacker, heads to the north of Australia for sun, women, and a shot at making a fortune working the shrimp trawlers.
While looking for adventure, Mick hitches a ride with the enigmatic Dan who leads him into more trouble and depravity than even the most reckless traveller could stomach. As the pair speed through the apocalyptic landscape—in a spiral of escalating violence—Dan reveals the world as seen through his eyes, and Mick’s true nature is exposed.
A game of psychological cat-and-mouse, this is the gripping tale of two men—one struggling to become the definition of a "man" and the other plotting to make his cruellest intentions a reality.
