Australian action drama directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith. In the poverty-stricken near future, where crime dominates the inner cities, prison camps are fashioned out of disused drive-in theatres in an attempt to contain unemployed and undesirable citizens. When Crabs (Ned Manning) takes his girlfriend Carmen (Natalie McCurry) out to see a movie, he unwittingly takes her to one of these camps. With his car stripped of its parts and a racist prison gang beginning to take a keen interest in Carmen, Crabs tries a series of elaborate and ultimately unsuccessful escape attempts. With Carmen resigned to her fate and now fully integrated into the camp's forlorn community, Crabs takes on one last daring escape effort in a bid to gain his freedom.
