Gritty Australian crime drama based on the infamous 'Bodies in the Barrels' murders, which took place in Australia in the 1990s.

When he meets John Bunting (Daniel Henshall), a charismatic older man who has recently moved into the neighbourhood, Jamie's life changes beyond recognition as he gradually becomes drawn into a world of bigotry, brutality and hatred.
Contains strong sadistic violence and a scene of sexual violence
