Old Mate

Desperate to impress the boys he idolizes, fifteen year old Casey agrees to steal a hunting rifle from a crippled old manʼs cabin in the hills. When the robbery goes horribly wrong, Casey must face up to the consequences of his reckless and misguided undertaking. An atmospheric story of redemption and innocence lost from the team behind The Sunshine State (MIFF 2012).
