In the film, Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases British officer Lieutenant Hawkins through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family.

In his review, Ash Crowlin stated, "It’s not a movie you’ll watch passively while screwing around with your phone. It’s compelling, it’s brutal, and it never lets go long enough to let you run away from it."
