Was the cry of the infamous Kelly Gang, which struck terror into the hearts of the wealthy land owners and bankers in 1880? But beyond the tough exterior, was a gang of 4 young free-settlers who considered themselves downtrodden and were tired of the constant harassment of the Troopers and the Traps. 
Their leader was a man with piercing eyes and a bold heart who wrote himself into Australian Folklore when he donned a suit of Armour and stood his ground against overwhelming odds in a place called Glenrowan.

Beyond the Armour, behind the eyes was a man ruthless and gentle, rugged and kind - The Infamous Outlaw Ned Kelly. Both revered and reviled throughout the ages Ned Kelly was an Irish-Australian battler, come bushranger, fiercely independent and pushed into action by the repressive colonial authorities of the time.

This interpretation of The Kelly Gangs last days, leading up to the fateful day of the shootout at the Glenrowan Inn, which culminated with the arrest of Ned Kelly to face his fate with the hangman's noose.
