"Rex is a loner, a cabbie in a small town with just a few mates. When he's told he doesn't have long to live, he embarks on an epic drive through the Australian outback from Broken Hill to Darwin to die on his own terms. On his way he picks up some companions, a rudderless young indigenous drifter and English barmaid nurse-turned-backpacker. Their adventures together, as well as what Rex learns from the doctor who might help him die, the legal system and his own heart, lead him to a decision that surprises even himself. Terrific cast, Australian locations and wonderful score enhance this very human story. Come early for live music from The Big Wee."
