Set against the harsh and unforgiving landscape of the 1880s Australian outback, The Proposition is a visually stunning tale of loyalty, revenge and the quest for justice in a lawless land. Charlie Burns (Guy Pearce) is a renegade living in the lawless frontier who, along with his two brother Arthur (Danny Huston) and Mikey (Richard Wilson), is wanted for rape and murder. When local law enforcer Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone) captures Charlie and Mikey, he offers Charlie a proposition in an attempt to end the brutality that surrounds them -- the only way to save his youger brother Mikey from the gallows is to track down and kill Arthur, his psychotic older brother, whom Captain Stanley believes to be the ringleader in the violence. Both men face an impossible moral dilemma that leads to a murderous climax.
