Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Australia. 1958. When a nine-year-old white girl is found murdered in a remote cave the local police are quick to arrest an illiterate Aborigine named Max Stuart. Under interrogation Max admits to the killing and signs the statement that will send him to the gallows.

With no Court of Appeal established in the country, and with a legal system compromised by intimidation tactics and the stain of institutional racism, the skills of David O'Sullivan and Helen Devaney - two gifted but naive young defense lawyers - are put to the test. Soon, a rising press mogul called Rupert Murdoch uses his headlines to lend full support to the defendant, and the lawyers' efforts take them all the way to the Privy Council in London.

Starring Robert Carlyle and Kerry Fox as the idealistic lawyers who take on the might of a rigidly conservative establishment, this compelling real-life drama is based on a landmark case that changed a nation forever.
