The Screen Guide

In 1985, Angelo Tsakos, a young Greek-Australian boy from the depressed western suburbs of Sydney, was shot dead by a probationary police constable while driving a stolen car. He was only 16. At the enquiry three differing versions of the event were described. This film reconstructs these versions and finds questions still unanswered. In 1989 his family was still trying to get a full enquiry into the killing of Angelo Tsakos.
