Inspired by Australia’s untold history, High Ground is a reckoning with the past, set in stunning country.
World War One army sniper-turned-policeman Travis (Simon Baker) loses control of his team during a confrontation in Northern Australia leading to the massacre of an Indigenous tribe. Leaving in disgust after the crime is covered up, he is forced to return as a bounty hunter 12 years later when warrior leader Baywara (Sean Mununggurr) conducts a spate of attacks on settler properties. Travis recruits mission-raised Gutjuk (Jacob Junior Nayinggul), survivor of the tragedy years prior as his Tracker. Gutjuk joins Travis for reasons of his own, a reckoning of their shared past. High Ground was highly acclaimed at its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival 2020.
