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.

I'm thrilled that there's another horror movie filmed in Tasmania.  I only know of two - Dying Breed and Van Diemen's Land.

Looks like some controversy over graphic violence and rape scenes.  :horror:

Probably you're only chance to see it at the cinema since I doubt it will get a mainstream release.  Even in my country (for some reasons Australians hate Aussie films).
