Au début des années 1930, Reinhard Heydrich, militaire renvoyé de la Reichsmarine, rejoint le nazisme sur la suggestion de sa femme Lina. Il devient alors le bras droit du chef de la SS naissante, Heinrich Himmler. Celui-ci le nomme en 1939 à la tête du RSHA, l'organe principal de police secrète et judiciaire du Reich, dont l'une des sections est la célèbre Gestapo. Principal adjoint de Himmler, il est l’un des hommes les plus puissants du régime. En septembre 1941, Hitler lui donne en complément les attributions de vice-gouverneur de Bohême-Moravie, la partie occupée de la Tchécoslovaquie : pour cela, il a des bureaux à Prague où il règne en maître, car le gouverneur en titre Konstantin von Neurath est vieillissant et malade. Comme Heydrich est resté chef du RSHA, il a aussi pour mission de mener à son terme le plan déjà entamé d’extermination des Juifs d’Europe : la « solution finale de la question juive ».

A group of transported convicts, suffering brutal treatment at the Sarah Island penal settlement on Van Diemens Land, escape into the Tasmanian wilderness in hopes of reaching the settlements to the east. Their enthusiasm and bravado soon give way to hunger, which saps their strength and causes them to despair. Former urban dwellers, the English, Irish and Scottish convicts realise that not only are they lost, but they do not even know how to hunt or fish. The oppressive nature of landscape becomes the setting for murder, as hunger forces the group to turn to cannibalism, killing and eating the members of the group one by one. The men do all in their power to keep moving, watch their back and avoid sleep, lest they be the next meal.
