Van Diemen’s Land movie trailer:

The entrance to its remote station of secondary punishment, Macquarie Harbour, was named Hell's Gates by its prisoners as a reference to the gates of hell in Dante's Inferno - "Abandon all hope ye who enter here" was plastered at the harbour-mouth as a warning to all souls sent there.

In 1822, eight convicts escaped Macquarie Harbour in a fateful bid for freedom. This band of Irish, English and Scottish thieves were immediately hurled into chaos as their plan failed and they were thrust into the heart of a harsh and foreboding landscape. With little food or equipment, in a place these immigrants knew little about, they battled a merciless enemy - the unforgiving, barren land - a land where God wields an axe.
