Melbourne in the 1970s: Sparra is looking to make a new start. He's got a good job, a wonderful fiancée and a nice house outside of town. Everything seems perfect – until one day his past catches up with him. Pommie, his former cellmate, suddenly turns up to remind him of an old promise. Sparra's bourgeois idyll and relationship fall more and more under the shadow of the cryptic yet charismatic Pommie, who has a strong reciprocal attraction for Sparra. He has to decide: which life, which love, means more to him? Cut Snake is a disturbing thriller full of unexpected twists and turns.
