Who's he?

Wait at the bar.

This is no way to greet an old friend.

You've kept me waiting here for 2 weeks.

Christ! It's Paris! See the sights.

I'm here for work.

There's a lot of ground to cover.

Difficult terrain, remote, so...

...they want me to send someone

with you.

Two men is a security risk.

This is an important job.

There's no room for mistakes.

So don't make any!

It must be very nice, William,

not to need anyone.

The client is Red Leaf,

a military biotech.

They're after something

extremely rare.

You're to bring back

biological samples.

Blood, skin, hair, organs.

As for the rest, make sure

no one else can ever find it.

What Red Leaf wants

is very valuable.

But only if they have

exclusive ownership.

You're looking for something

most believe is extinct.

The rarest... most elusive

creature on the planet.

The client has evidence

it still exists.

If so, it may be the very

last one.

The client has reports from

a reliable source.

Two confirmed sightings...

in the past year.

Until now, these sightings

have been kept secret.

But word always

gets out.

We have only a

couple of months,

Maybe less.

After that, there will

be competition.

Perhaps there already is.


Hey, what are you


You can't wake her up!

I'm Martin David, from

the university.

Hello, Martin David.

I'm Sass, he's

my brother Bike.

Mum said we should

show you to your room.

Come on.

- The bulb's burnt up.

- No.

No fuckin' power.

Excuse me?

There's a generator.

But it's stopped working.

You gonna fix it?

I've got a lot of equipment.

I need power.


It used to work, then

it stopped.

Dad says the fuckin' f*ck is

completely fucked.

Where's your father?

Gone away, up there.

He'll be back soon though.

He'll fix it if you can't.

There's water in the cold tap.

Oh... and the toilet's outside.

You right there mate?

Um, just need to use the restroom.

You wanna drink first?




How much to rent a room?

No vacancies.

Not even one small room?

All regulars, mate.


I can pay double.

Pay triple if you want.

Same difference.

Hey, you!

Hey, you!

- Do you wanna room?

- Yeah.


Well you can't have one.

- You're from overseas, aren't you. Some uni.

- You gotta room? I can pay.


The thing is, mate...

...we don't really like greenies

around here.

So, unless you wanna

join your mate...

Jarrah fuckin' Armstrong...

f*ck off!

- You're up, Dougie.

- Comin'.

I've arrived. The lodging is...

not what I expected.

The communication may be

a problem, so I'll

call when I have something

to report.

What's she singing about?

She sounds sad...

yelling like that.

She's not yelling.

Don't you ever listen to music?

Sure. My dad likes "The Boss".


"The Boss".

Bruce Springsteen.

He rocks!

You shouldn't come in here

without knocking.

Are you looking for my dad?

No, I'm researching

Tasmanian devils.

But if you see him, will you

tell him to come home?

I'll be up... twelve days, and then

I'll come back for

two days to resupply and

do my paper work.

If I'm not back Wednesday

next week...

Take this... when you go up.

You can keep it for a while.

He's my dad, and we gave him

that for his birthday.

That's what he looks like.


Double four point three zero.

Those are my coordinates.

They're points on the map.

Now listen...

- When your mother wakes up... remember...

- I know. Twelve days.

Jack's here.

- Where are my soldiers?

- Jack!

Hello princess.

Hello mate.

Oh, there he is.

G'day. Jack Mindy.

Martin David. How's it going?
