The Screen Guide

Indigenous Detective JAY SWAN arrives in an outback town on a missing persons enquiry. What seems like a simple 'light duties' investigation soon opens into a web of crime and corruption implicating the local Mayor, Mining Boss and Aboriginal Land Council. Jay must overcome personal differences with the young local policeman JOSH while he pulls his life together to dig deeper into the conspiracy. The two cops are led into a world of people trafficking and organised crime where the value of a life is pitted against big money and deep-rooted corruption.
