Contemporary Melbourne. Winnie (Tilda Cobham-Hervey) runs a struggling underground bookshop with her activist boyfriend Conrad (Josh McConville) while looking after her younger brother Stevie (Chris Bunton). When Conrad becomes entangled in a terrorist plot, and is under-surveillance by the police, Winnie and Stevie’s world is upended, caught in an unexpected collision of inept anarchists, ambitious police and a corrupt politician. Jonathan Ogilvie’s intriguing political thriller drops Joseph Conrad’s classic novel The Secret Agent into a modern Australian setting where we are all under surveillance, tracked and identified. And both Big Brother and little brother are watching us!
