Asta Cadell limps into an outback town on a crippled motorcycle, trapped while she waits for repairs and unaware of what danger she has walked into.

Asta Cadell (Deborra-Lee Furness, Jindabyne) limps into an outback town on a crippled motorcycle. Trapped while she waits for repairs, Asta stays at the garage of Tim Curtis (Tony Barry, Australia). She soon discovers that Tim’s young daughter, Lizzie (Simone Buchanan, My Brilliant Career), is the latest victim of the local sport: gang rape. Some women are intimidated, others make excuses, and the law looks the other way, but nothing ever changes. Attacked herself, Asta is drawn in to the townswomen’s struggle for safety and dignity. Emboldened by her, Lizzie lays charges and all hell breaks loose. The women rise up, but resistance is never that simple.
