An English backpacker heads north for sun, women and a shot at making a fortune working the prawn trawlers. Mick is looking for adventure, but hitching a ride with the enigmatic Dan leads him into more trouble and depravity than even the most reckless traveller could stomach. As the pair speed their way through the apocalyptic landscape, in a spiral of escalating violence, Dan reveals the world as seen through his eyes, and exposes Mick's true nature. A gripping tale of two menandmdash;one struggling to become a man and the other with the cruelest of intentionsandmdash;and a game of psychological cat-and-mouse, Babylon takes you to the edge, and never brings you back.
