On a sweltering Australia Day in Brisbane, the worlds of three young people collide.  Indigenous teen April (Miah Madden), young Chinese woman Lan (Jenny Wu), and Iranian-Australian boy, Sami (Elias Anton), are desperate and on the run.

As each of their stories unfold, a farmer (Bryan Brown), Indigenous policewoman (Shari Sebbens) and homicide detective (Matthew Le Nevez) are also swept into a whirlpool of violence, racism and resentment. Provocative and illuminating, AUSTRALIA DAY offers a fascinating take on national identity and the pulsing dark heart of ‘the lucky country’.

In cinemas September 21.

Also included in the giveaway is an Australian Drama DVD Pack including the following titles: Last Cab To Darwin, Little Fish, The Black Balloon and Rabbit Proof Fence
