Nitram (Caleb Landry Jones) lives with his mother (Judy Davis) and father
(Anthony LaPaglia) in suburban Australia in the Mid 1990s. He lives a life
of isolation and frustration at never being able to fit in. That is until
he unexpectedly finds a close friend in a reclusive heiress, Helen (Essie
Davis). However, when that relationship meets a tragic end, and Nitram’s
loneliness and anger grow, he begins a slow descent that leads to disaster.
