A young police officer Shane Cooper (Ryan Kwanten) is starting his first day in a new job, after relocating to the small country town of Red Hill with his pregnant wife Alice (Claire Van Der Boom) to start a family. With the news of a prison break, local law enforcement officers - led by the townâ€™s ruling presence, Old Bill (Steve Bisley) â€" are sent into a panic. Shaneâ€™s first day on duty unexpectedly and rather rapidly turns into a nightmare.
Enter Jimmy Conway (Tom E Lewis), a convicted murderer serving life behind bars, who has returned to the isolated outpost seeking revenge. Now caught in the middle of what will become a terrifying and bloody confrontation, Shane will be forced to take the law into his own hands if he is to survive.
A taut thriller which unfolds over the course of a single day and night, told with explosive action and chilling violence, RED HILL is a modern-day western played out against the extraordinary landscapes of high-country Australia.
