When a man wakes up in the Australian outback with no memory, he must use the few clues he has to discover his identity before his past catches up with him.

In the glowing red heart of the Australian outback, a man (Jamie Dornan) is pursued by vast tank truck trying to run him off the road. Later, when he wakes up in hospital, hurt but somehow alive he realises he has no idea who he is.

Helen Chambers (Danielle Macdonald), a local rookie cop, is sent to check on The Man, and as there are no immediate clues as to his identity she promises to help him find the answers.

With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, The Man’s search for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving outback. Idiosyncratic characters including Luci Miller (Shalom Brune-Franklin), a waitress in a sleepy one-horse town, are drawn to this curious new arrival.

When somebody from his past contacts him out of the blue, The Man must race to find them before it’s too late.
