Goldstone

Synopsis

Aboriginal detective Jay Swan arrives in the frontier town of Goldstone on the trail of a missing person. He is immediately arrested for drunk driving by young local cop Josh.

When Jay’s motel room is blasted with gunfire, it becomes clear that something larger is at play in the district. Jay and Josh struggle to overcome their mutual distrust to uncover the unpleasant truth.

What seems like a simple light duties investigation opens into a web of crime and corruption in the establishment that controls the town, the local mine and the local Aboriginal land council.

Jay must pull his life together and bury his differences with young local cop Josh, so together they can bring justice to Goldstone.

“He’s someone of Indigenous background but upholding white law in an ever-changing political landscape where Indigenous people are being tempted with corruption at a level that we haven’t seen before, which is largely what Goldstone explores,” explains director Ivan Sen[1].

Goldstone is a follow-up to Mystery Road.
