A cult Australian-made drama about an undercover cop (Ken Shorter) who infiltrates the Sydney bikie scene to investigate a number of gangland murders.
The action begins in the Domain (a Sydney park) where a crowd, including the tough Gravediggers motorcycle gang, is gathered to listen to one of the country’s political figures speak.
The speaker is assassinated and the only witness is one of the bikies who is wandering around tripping on LSD.
One by one the bike gang are killed by the assassins in peculiar and bloodthirsty ways.
A hip drug squad detective called Stone (the pun may or may not be intended) joins the bike gang undercover to track down the killers. He learns their way of life, their motives for ‘dropping out’ and witnesses their indisputable loyalty to their own people.
In the process, he also finds he has a certain sympathy with them.
The soundtrack is particularly powerful, containing everything from a Moog synthesizer to a didgeridoo. It also includes Doug Parkinson singing Dylan Thomas’s Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night.
