The name you know. The story you don’t…

In June 1880, the reign of the Kelly Gang ended – guns blazing – in a fiery siege at the
Glenrowan Inn. Ned Kelly survived, only to be hanged four months later. In this re-imagining
of Australia’s most notorious bushranger, Ned is given the chance to keep his band of
brothers together and build a better life.

What unfolds is the human side of four outlaws who are remembered as much for their
anarchy and rebellion as their crimes. Ned Kelly. The life that might have been.

A historical tale of Australia’s most notorious outlaws with a slight twist. Nicole Kelly
breathes life back into Ned Kelly and expertly explores the hopes and ideals of a young man
on the wrong side of the law, and the life he might have lived if he had escaped his past.
