Justice is Different from the Law
Chas Robertson is driven to steal to survive through a
severe drought. His crime is witnessed by a police
Aboriginal tracker and he is charged. Suddenly he is
accused of attempting to murder the same witness. If Chas
cannot convince the jury of his innocence he faces time in
Darlinghurst Gaol. Or worse!
Based on a true story, The Justice Machine examines the motivations of the players in the law game. The Magistrate, the Policeman, the Prosecutor, the Barrister and the Judge all have their own reasons for being there. Hardly any of them are to do with justice. The law and justice are different things it seems.
The year is 1882 but this could be any time. Injustice is timeless.
