Synopsis by Daniel Gelb

The final months of Australian outlaw Ben Hall (Jack Martin) are recounted in this historical biopic directed by Matthew Holmes. Hall is drawn back into a life of crime in the 1860s by a former colleague, and he navigates the bush of New South Wales with his marauding gang while becoming the most wanted man in the country. Holmes also wrote the script, which aims for a historically accurate portrait of the Aussie folk legend.
