21 January - 08 February 2014

From the makers of the controversial film The Combination comes Convict, the story of a returned Australian war veteran pushed to the limit mentally and physically whilst serving time in prison for manslaughter.

Ray (George Basha, The Combination, Black Rock) has been on duty in the Middle East and has great pride in his life as a soldier. In prison he comes face to face with the realities of a world he has sought to avoid.

While his fiancé Kelly (Millie Rose Heywood, Paper Giants) waits for him yet again, Ray finds himself in hell being brutalized by the prison warden (David Field, Chopper, Two Hands) and the guards.

Daley Jones (Mad Bastards, Satellite Boy) and Tony Ryan (Red Dog, Blacktown) are powerful as prison gang members providing their own brand of brutal enforcement.

The first real hard hitting prison film to come out of Australiain decades and will prove to be iconic!
