After being deported to Van Diemen’s Land for thievery, Irish convict woman Clare finds herself living a nightmare under the rule of a sadistic lieutenant. Sometimes he forces Clare to sing for his troops, who dub her their little Nightingale; more often he forces himself on her and there’s little she or her husband can do to stop him … until Clare reaches breaking point and sets her mind to revenge, with a little help from a local Aboriginal tracker, Billy. An essential, unsettling, cinematic experience.
