1820's Tasmania. A young Irish convict seeks revenge

Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.

"Jennifer Kent impressively follows up 'The Babadook' with a historical revenge tale of shattering brutality and hard-earned grace." - Variety, Venice 2018
