Jackie lives alone in a small rural property in western Sydney. Her house is crumbling around her – the effect of 50 years of detonations from a nearby army base.
Her world is upended when a refugee fleeing danger enters her property. Although he is strange and silent they form a tentative alliance.
But the comfort of a shared daily life is underlined by fear. Who is this man? Can he trust her and stop running?
Shot entirely in Sydney’s western suburbs MORTARS is a hybrid film, part documentary, part fictional drama from director Iqbal Barkat and Filigree Films.
