Gritty Australian crime drama set in mid-1980s Melbourne. 17-year-old Josh, or 'J' (James Frecheville), goes to live with his estranged grandmother Cody (Jacki Weaver) and uncles Pope (Ben Mendelsohn), Craig (Sullivan Stapleton) and Darren (Luke Ford) after his mother dies from a heroin overdose. It turns out that Cody is a fearsome crime matriarch presiding over a family of armed robbers, drug dealers, murderers, gangsters and sociopaths. Josh must now navigate his way through this explosive 'animal kingdom' of violent crime, helped and hindered in equal measures by police detective Leckie (Guy Pearce).
