The bleak and uncompromisingly violent story of the aftermath of a tragic accident which sets a mother who will stop at nothing to protect her son on a fatal collision course with the policeman who will stop at nothing to see that justice is done. This is a modern twist on a classic western (western) that raises unsettling questions of loyalty, race and morality. The searing heat and brutal landscape of the South African desert salt flats provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable set piece finale.
