Australian drama about a woman defending her family against all odds

1893, the Australian Outback. The area is rough, the people hard-nosed, the law rather secondary. Here, women – and newcomers anyway – quickly become the pawn of men. Even Nate Clintoff, who is new in town to keep law and order, still has to fight for his place in the hierarchy. Molly Johnson, heavily pregnant and alone with her children on a farm far from town, knows her place only too well. Nevertheless, she doesn’t let it get her down. She does everything to protect her children. Everything.

★★★★★ An exceptionally compelling Outback Western Variety
★★★★ An impassioned film with an unflinching Indigenous and feminist perspective. ScreenDaily
