Heaven's Burning

1h 39m Action, Adventure, Crime, Australia, Australian 1997

After a botched bank job, a gang takes a Japanese girl on the run from an arranged marriage hostage.

In Sydney, the newly married Midori (Yuki Kudo, Memoirs of a Geisha) is honeymooning with her husband, Yukio (Kenji Isomura). She does not love him and fakes her own kidnapping to escape the marriage. Her lover is supposed to meet her, but fails to appear. She goes to a bank to get some cash, only to become a hostage in an unfolding robbery, until the getaway driver, Colin (Russell Crowe, The Water Diviner), saves her from his fellow robbers. They hit the road together, with the cops, her husband and the robbers in pursuit.
