Tues 6th/Weds 7th Nov 2018 7.30pm.

In an outback town in Queensland, Jay Swan, an Indigenous cowboy detective, returns home to solve the brutal murder of an Indigenous girl whose body is found under the highway out of town.

Jay is alienated from both the white-dominated police force and the Indigenous community, including his teenage daughter, who he discovers is connected to the murdered girl.

This taut, western-style murder mystery explores the minefield of modern Australian culture.
