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.
The first producer on board for the film was producer Kristina Ceyton. She had previously produced director Jennifer Kent's 'The Babadook' (2014). The pair applied for final development support from Screen Australia, and also received the inaugural 'Gender Matters: Better Deals' funding, which is part of a suite of initiatives that address the gender imbalance within the Australian screen industry. "It was an incredible privilege that we received the first Gender Matters support," said Ceyton. "Screen Australia have been pivotal in supporting female filmmakers - producers, writers, directors and other creatives - as well as supporting female stories."

When Billy finds Uncle Charlie shot dead, he is clearly breathing.
" Tasmanian Aboriginal culture is a living culture. The Aboriginal language used in this film is called 'Palawa kani'. It was created by current day Tasmanian Aboriginal people using records of their original languages. Aboriginal actors cast in this film are from mainland Australia. They and we pay our respects to the aboriginal people of Lutruwita (Tasmania) past and present."
