Ryan Corr (Holding the Man) and Golden Globe winner Anthony LaPaglia (Without a Trace) star in this Australian black comedy drama that takes aim at the country's asylum-seeker detention system. Adapted for the screen by playwright Ian Wilding from his award-winning play of the same name.

When darkweb con-artist Dougie (Corr) lands in the bloody deep end of a scam gone wrong, his gruff stepdad, Terry (LaPaglia), agrees to pay off his debts. In return, Dougie must take a job at the refugee detention centre where Terry works. Ever the grifter, Dougie discovers a way to make cash by live-streaming the underground fight club run by the centre’s morally bankrupt security staff. But when things inevitably go south, Dougie may be the only one willing to take a stand.

Fight Club meets Australian immigration detention in jumbled black comedy. The director’s approach is to maintain one great big poker face in this perplexing and surprisingly low-key film.
