The Australian outback, 1922…. four men relentlessly track a fugitive, an aboriginal man accused of murdering a white woman. In charge of the expedition is the Fanatic (Gary Sweet, Gettin’ Square), calculating and complex. The Follower (Damon Gameau, Patrick, That Sugar Film) is new to the frontier, a greenhorn. The Veteran (Grant Page, Rough Stuff, Mad Max) is along for the ride, placing thoughts before action. But all three white men are dependant on the mysterious figure of the black Tracker (David Gulpilil - Cargo, Rabbit-Proof Fence). When an interrogation of a small group of indigenous people turns into a massacre, paranoia sets in and the question becomes not will the fugitive be caught, but what is black and what is white… and who is leading whom?
