The Future is Fragile

Australian feature film Cargo starring Martin Freeman. Directed by Yolanda Ramke and Ben Howling.

At its core, CARGO is a dual father/daughter love story, which just so happens to unfold against the backdrop of a deadly outbreak. The film explores two parallel tales of familial devotion: an infected man’s mission to seek a new home for his infant daughter and conversely, a young Indigenous girl’s quest to save the soul of her infected father.
