Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Loosely based on a series of true crimes committed in Australia in the early 21st century, director Shannon Young's independent thriller follows the story of five young men who set out seeking vengeance against those they believed have wronged society. Affairs in Australia are in shambles, and from the streets to the boardroom, crime has run rampant. But when anyone who speaks out is immediately silenced and brutalized, who will stand up for the common man? Zach (Richard Cawthorne) is the leader of a gang that decides to take justice into its own hands -- a violent preacher who uses his pulpit to promote the destruction of a broken social system. Other members of the gang include morbid pyrotechnics specialist Orville (Teague Rook), soft-spoken anarchist Anthony (Campbell Usher), and fearless videographer Rob (Shannon Young) -- who always keeps his lens trained on the action. Now, as the group's destructive brand of homebrew terrorism begins to strike fear into the hearts of the very Australians they once claimed to be protecting, the line between right and wrong becomes blurred beyond the point of distinction.
