About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 Berlin Film Festival

Travis, a jaded detective, arrives in the remote outback town of Limbo to investigate the cold case murder of local Indigenous girl Charlotte Hayes 20 years ago. As truths about the murder begin to unfold, the detective gains a new insight into the unsolved case.

“This is outback noir — oblique, secretive and as hard-boiled as the ground is hard-baked”

—Guy Lodge, Variety
