When her bike breaks down on a cross-country motorcycling holiday, lawyer Asta Cadell (Deborra-Lee Furness) stops off in a small Australian town to find a mechanic. Once there, she discovers that the women in the town are being raped and terrorized by a group of local thugs. While the townsfolk turn a blind eye on the boys' misbehavior, Asta vows to help young rape victim Lizzie Curtis (Simone Buchanan) seek justice.
