Add to basket AGAINST THE WIND



Based on true historical accounts AGAINST THE WIND covers 15 years of Australia's most brutal Colonial past. It tells the story of 18 year-old Mary Mulvane who, along with her defiant brother Michael (Bryan Brown), challenges Sovereign law and must live with the consequences of her actions. Unfairly charged Mary is sentenced to serve seven years as a convict, transported from Ireland to NSW in 1798. Destined to overcome the misery of a repressed life, Mary's journey represents a grueling chapter of the Australian experience.Surviving the hardship and horror of transportation to Australia Mary forges a heartfelt and lasting friendship with fellow convict Jonathan Garrett (Jon English) and is thrust into the precarious plight of convicts and settlers alike, befriending rabble raiser Dinny (Gerard Kennedy), as they face an uncertain future in a savage and unforgiving land.
