Sydney Cove, 1788. When Bruce’s romantic plan of getting himself arrested to follow his girlfriend on the First Fleet backfires, he finds himself trapped in a violent prison camp at the arse-end of the world. Turns out 18th century penal colony romance is...complicated. Bruce is a pitch-black comedy that brings the convict colonisation of Australia to vivid, brutal, hilarious life.
