Inspired by real events, Sweet Country is a period Western set in 1929 in Australia's Northern Territory. When Aboriginal stockman Sam kills a white station owner in self-defense, Sam and his wife go on the run. They are pursued across the outback, through glorious but harsh desert country. Sergeant Fletcher leads the posse with the help of an Aboriginal tracker and local landowners. Fletcher is desperate to capture Sam and put him on trial for murder - but Sam is an expert bushman and has little difficulty outlasting them. Eventually, for the health of his pregnant wife, Sam decides to give himself up. He is put on trial in the makeshift courtroom of Judge Taylor. But will justice be served?
