SWEET COUNTRY

An Australian western set in 1920’s Northern Territory, where justice itself is put on trial when an aged Aboriginal farmhand shoots a white man in self-defence and goes on the run.
Middle-aged Aboriginal Sam’s (Hamilton Morris) relationship with his cruel and ill-tempered neighbour Harry (Ewen Leslie) quickly deteriorates, culminating in a shootout in which Sam kills Harry in self-defence. As a result, Sam becomes a wanted criminal for the murder of a white man, and is forced to flee with his wife across the deadly outback, through glorious but harsh desert country. Full details.
