Description

This Thriller/Western, a sequel to the director's 2013 Mystery Road, brings taciturn aboriginal detective Jay Swan to the dusty, outback burg of Goldstone. Now looking the worse for wear, he is spiraling out of control because of a personal tragedy. Meanwhile, what seems like a simple investigation into a missing Chinese immigrant woman opens a web of crime and corruption. Jay must heal himself and rely on a young local cop so together they can bring justice to Goldstone.

“Sen’s unique accomplishment with these two films, unequalled in contemporary Aussie cinema, is his daringly idealistic intention and crystal clear success at balancing the demands of contemporary genre filmmaking with, in this case, the ongoing hot-button issues of Aboriginal relations (Sen is himself of mixed Indigenous/European heritage), human trafficking, the human greed behind corporate corruption, and cultural destruction.” – Eddie Cockrell, Variety
