A sweeping, historial epic set against the brutal backdrop of a stunning Australian landscape, SWEET COUNTRY follows the story of Sam, a middle-aged Aborigine man who becomes a wanted criminal after a violent altercation with a bitter war veteran.
When Sam is forced to flee across the harsh desert country, pursued by a hunting party led by the local lawman, the true details of his supposed crime start to surface, and the community begins to question whether justice is really being served.
Sweet Country is set for release on March 9th in the UK.
