Welcome to the terrifying Melbourne crime underworld, where tensions are on the brink of exploding between felons and renegade cops. The Cody brothers, a gang of armed robbers, are initiating their nephew Joshua 'J' into their frightening world after the death of his mother and under the watchful eye of his matriarchal grandmother, Smurf, who seems to be pulling the strings. Pope, the oldest brother, tries unsuccessfully to come to terms with the fact that his partner, Barry 'Baz' Brown, wants out of the game. Craig, the middle brother, deals and does cocaine while youngest brother Darren is fighting with his conscience. J quickly comes to believe that he is a player in this world, but soon discovers that the entire situation is far larger and more menacing than he could ever imagine and must determine how the game is played and choose his place in this brutal animal kingdom.
