Wake in Fright Wake in Fright

Have a drink, mate? Have a fight, mate? Have some dust and sweat, mate? There's nothing else out here.

Wake in Fright is the story of John Grant, a bonded teacher who arrives in the rough outback mining town of Bundanyabba planning to stay overnight before catching the plane to Sydney, but as one night stretches to five and he plunges headlong toward his own destruction.
