Two British migrant brothers in search of easy money find themselves in an outback mining town. With the arrival of a boxing tent comes the opportunity for the rapid increase of the brothers' meagre savings through a prize fight and a side bet.
Below examines how past events and secrets can seep into the present, and how the bonds of kinship and love play out in a reality that is harsh and brutal but also strangely poetic.
"A tough, hard-hitting play... powerfully claustrophobic ... Inviting comparisons with Pinter and Beckett, [this] outback noir piece displays strong existentialist and nihilist overtones and is brimming with tension and menace that occasionally spill over into physical violence."—Mark Woods, Variety
