Plot

The film is set in modern-day (2005) Sydney, Australia. Barrett (Colin Friels) is a loner who works for a group of illegitimate businessman called "The Gentlemen" as a contractor, specializing in assassinations and disposing of bodies. But he has had enough and wants to retire to a quiet life of fishing in a coastal town far away. "The Gentlemen", (top man Arkan, his associates Louis and Nguyen and Barrett's "handler", boxing promoter Reno) have no wish to lose his services, but offer him his freedom if he will murder a university student who has been over-enthusiastically delving into their part in the Sydney crime scene, the subject of her thesis. Barrett, who has befriended her, instead fakes her murder and the two take off for distant parts. That evening, after a heavy drinking session during which he confesses to her of his criminal past, she kills him. She answers a phone call from Reno, who is surprised that she has killed Barrett, but as a murderer she now has no choice but to work for him.
