The Screen Guide

1814. Van Diemen's Land, the notorious British penal colony, has dissolved into chaos. Outlaws roaming the wilderness have pushed the colonial government to breaking point. Driven by a deep sense of loyalty and an unquenchable hated towards those he once served, English convict Michael Howe and a young Aboriginal girl turn a desperate band of convicts, deserters and bushmen into a fearsome guerrilla army and lead them in open rebellion against a brutal, corrupt establishment.
