Hoping that self-employment through gig economy can solve their financial woes, a hard-up UK delivery driver and his wife struggling to raise a family end up trapped in the vicious circle of this modern-day form of labour exploitation.
Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.
They told a tough, tough story of a mother trying to cope with homelessness. Kudos to the Irish for telling this harrowing tale - a tale of the unintended consequences of capitalism: some people become homeless. Few government agencies or charities exist to help them, as the story so vividly tells.
