Flaus stars in this tense, low-budget thriller as Pete, an ageing professional criminal whose terminal cancer diagnosis leads him back to Melbourne to tie up some loose ends. The film’s flavoursome noir influence can be largely attributed to Flaus, who, before shooting began, introduced Fitchett to several films in the genre including Jean-Pierre Melville’s neo-noir Le samouraï, which became a significant inspiration. Co-starring Chrissie James and featuring an early career supporting role for Bryan Brown as Pete’s younger brother, it was co-written by Fitchett, John Ruane and Ellery Ryan.
