Dead Heart synopsis

Ray Lorkin (Bryan Brown), chief lawman in the tiny rural settlement of Wala Wala, Australia, fears that long-simmering tensions between the area's aborigine natives and white settlers are on the verge of erupting. When it's discovered that Kate (Angie Milliken), the white wife of local schoolteacher Les (Lewis Fitz-Gerald), has despoiled a sacred site by secretly meeting her aborigine lover, Tony (Aaron Pedersen), there, a shocking murder threatens to rip the small town apart.
