Serving six months for a minor offence, 19-year-old JR (Thwaites) quickly learns the harsh realities of prison life. After a chance encounter, he finds himself under the watchful eye of the enigmatic Brendan Lynch (McGregor), a calculating crime boss with extensive connections both inside and out. In exchange for protection, JR becomes apprentice to Lynch, and upon release he must orchestrate Lynch’s daring prison escape.
Rewarded for his involvement and with a taste for the high life, JR joins the crew on their next job – a high stakes heist that promises to deliver millions. Sucked deeper into the criminal underworld and unsure of whom to trust, JR soon finds himself on a collision course with his mentor in a very dangerous game.
The assured debut feature of Australian director Julius Avery ('Jerrycan'), this taut psychological thriller, both artful and laced with action, palpably gets under your skin.
