Summary *Coarse Language, Sexual References, Strong Violence*1814. The notorious British penal colony Van Diemen's Land has dissolved into chaos. Outlaws roaming the wilderness have pushed the colonial government to breaking point. Driven by loyalty and hatred for those he once served, English convict Michael Howe and an Aboriginal girl called Mary, turn a small band of desperate escapees, deserters and natives into a fearsome guerrilla army.As the British attempt to capture the outlaws, their leader remains an elusive prize. In desperation, the Governor sends every man at his disposal to hunt down Michael Howe. However, Howe has forged a relationship with the wife of the wealthiest settler in the colony and together they plot to throw down the government and assume control of the colony.With Howe's legend and gang growing more powerful by the day, the Governor sends every bounty hunter, bushman and armed convict at his disposal after Howe. Finally cornered, a heavily pregnant Mary is wounded and Howe escapes, assuming both wife and child are dead.The Governor hunts down the remaining gang members but Howe remains the elusive trophy.An epic story of love and betrayal, masters and slaves, of heroes and anti-heroes, The Outlaw Michael Howe chronicles the story of the brave men and women who refused the chains of oppression and those with the unenviable task of maintaining order in Van Diemen's Land. It is in this chaos that must choose sides and lay the foundation for a new world...PRODUCTION DETAILS:In association with ABC TV, The Outlaw Michael Howe is an In Films / Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder production, with the assistance of Screen New South Wales Regional Film Fund, Screen Australia and Screen Tasmania
