Nitram (Caleb Landry-Jones) lives with his mother (Judy Davis) and father (Anthony Lapaglia) in suburban Australia in the Mid 1990s. He lives a life of isolation and frustration, never being able to fit in. That is until he unexpectedly finds a close friend in a reclusive heiress, Helen (Essie Davis). However, when that friendship meets a tragic end and Nitram’s loneliness and anger grow, he begins a slow descent that leads to disaster.

NITRAM is a compelling narrative portrait about the troubled person behind Australia’s worst mass-shooting in Port Arthur in 1996. The film focuses on the life of Nitram in the time leading up to the shootings, and sheds light on how these incidents could have come to pass, bringing to the fore a range of themes that challenge modern-day society including isolation, family support interventions, mental health and gun control.

The film also stars Essie Davis, Anthony LaPaglia, Judy Davis, and Sean Keenan. Nitram will be released in UK and Irish cinemas from 1st July.
