Plot Synopsis

An Australian crime-drama trilogy, based on true events. This series is a gripping, gritty and shocking portrayal of the violent, drug-fueled Australian underworld from the 1970s through the early 2000s. Each season portrays a specific period in the country's criminal history: "A Tale of Two Cities" tells the story of the Griffith drug trade in the late 1970s and early 1980s; "War" focuses on the Melbourne gangland killings between 1995 and 2004; and "The Golden Mile" documents the hotbed of criminal activity in the famed Kings Cross section of Sydney in 1989.
