Item Details

In the desolate Australian outback of the 1880s, newly-arrived Captain Stanley captures the wanted outlaw Charlie Burns. Seeking to civilize the violent outback frontier, Captain Stanley presents his prisoner with a stark choice: Burns can either watch his beloved younger brother Mikey die on the gallows, or find and betray his older and far more dangerous brother Arthur to the authorities.
