Samuel Goldwyn’s High Ground spent 2020 making its way around film festivals. Now this coming May it’s ready to make its way to your home On Demand and Digital. A former World War I sniper, turned policeman in northern Australia loses control of a mission and ends up in a massacre. With his superiors burying what really happened, Travis leaves. Over a decade later, he is back to hunt down an Aboriginal warrior called Baywara that is wreaking havoc. To help with the mission Travis recruits Gutjuk, a mission-raised young man, as a tracker. He is also the only known massacre survivor. But what happens when Travis’s past is revealed?

Here is the summary for High Ground:
Gutjuk teams up with ex-sniper Travis to track down the most dangerous warrior in the Territory, who is also his uncle. As Travis and Gutjuk journey through the outback they begin to earn each other’s trust, but when the truths of Travis’ past actions are suddenly revealed, it is he who becomes the hunted.

This looks like a good film. It will be interesting to see what kind of plot twists we will see as the truth of Travis’ past comes to life. Also I look forward to seeing how the indigenous people are portrayed. What do you think of the trailer for High Ground? Let us know in the common section below!
