Set during WWII, Jarah (Lane) comes of age in a brutal and lawless land. She grows from a sweet child to a strong, independent and ferocious woman taking on Australia’s corrupt and bigoted system, one bad guy at a time. In the best tradition of the gunslinging outlaw, when the enigmatic Jarah is pushed to the limit, she explodes in a fury of retribution. But for a revenge western, there is a surprising series of twists and turns that lead us closer to redemption and reconciliation.
