A naïve man transporting lethal narcotics in his stomach is detained by the police. Alone and afraid, the mule makes a desperate choice -- to defy his bodily functions and withhold the evidence...literally. First of all, I cannot believe that with the content of this movie I am going 5 stars. Hugo Weaving is the cop and he wants the evidence in Angus Sampson's belly. In the original arrest he is held for 7 days under constant guard. The cops then get extensions all the while Angus is fighting and fighting not to....well you know. I have to say there is something appealing and interesting and complicated in this movie that really held my attention, don't dismiss this because you think you know what this is about, give it a try, great little Australian movie, I have to say that the Australians really know how to make movies and take chances doing that too. Great acting, direction and writing.....a daring idea that works.
