Synopsis

John heads for Sydney on vacation. When he stops over in the mining town of Bundanyabba, he finds himself caught up in a spiral of betting and alcohol that leaves him without a cent, forcing him to extend his stay in the town. He’ll soon discover the destructive impulse hidden in the town’s calm. A cult classic that we present in its restored version.
