Based on a true story, this uncompromising prison classic confronts hidden social issues surrounding the treatment of prisoners in Australia.

In a career-defining role, Bryan Brown plays China Jackson, a prisoner who, after going public on television about the prison bashings by warders, is then returned a few years later to the same prison where the assaults occurred.

What follows is a powerhouse portrayal of his rebellion against the brutal authorities.
