In the thrall of gang leader Zeus (Ali Haidar), Charlie's life oscillates between school-yardpunch-ups and the criminal antics of the gang.Meanwhile, John meets Sydney (Clare Bowen), a local Aussie girl, and there is an instant attraction. They fall in love. Wes (Tony Ryan), the Aboriginal owner of a boxing gym, employs John as a cleaner. Wes develops a soft spot for John, and when he discovers John's natural boxing talent he encourages him to go a few rounds with the gym's contender. After refusing, John gives in and demolishes the other boxer.Sydney's parents racial preconceptions of John push their relationship to the limit, and after a brutal, yet honest argument, and although very much in love, they part ways.Meanwhile, Charlie's continuing descent into the world of crime places his whole family in harm's way, forcing John to risk his new life to right his younger brother's wrong.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Director: David Field; Producer: John Pirrie; Screenplay: George Basha
