Son of a Gun


Synopsis

Locked up for a minor crime, 19-year-old JR quickly learns the harsh realities of prison life. There is no survival guide. Keep your head down, do your time, get out. Protection, if you can get it, is paramount. After a chance encounter, JR finds himself under the watchful eye of Australia's most notorious criminal, Brendan Lynch. But protection comes with a price, Lynch and his crew have plans for their young protégé, and soon JR's debt is called in. Outside, JR must help secure Lynch's freedom, staging a daring prison break. As a reward, he's invited to join the crew as they plan a series of heists that promise to deliver millions. But as things start to go wrong a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, and JR soon finds himself unsure of whom he can trust and on a collision course with his former mentor.
