When Aboriginal detective Jay Swan returns to his home town to solve the brutal murder of a teenage girl, he is immediately thrown into a web of lies and deceit. Alienated by the white-dominated police force to which he is attached and ostracised by the local Indigenous community, Jay must stand alone and attempt to unravel the truth before tensions boil over.


From award-winning director Ivan Sen (GoldstoneBeneath Clouds), MYSTERY ROAD is a gripping and intelligent modern-day take on the western. Beautifully shot on location in the Australian outback, the film features a stellar ensemble cast including Aaron Pedersen (The Circuit), Hugo Weaving (Lord of the Rings), Jack Thompson (The Great Gatsby) and Ryan Kwanten (True Blood).
