Heaven's Burning

Heaven's Burning

Available on Prime Video
Midori (Youki Kudoh, Memoirs of a Geisha), a reluctant Japanese bride, fakes her own kidnapping whilst honeymooning in Sydney but a failed rendezvous with her former lover sends her plans for a blissful future awry. Alone and bewildered in a strange country, she finds herself taken hostage in a bank robbery masterminded by Afghani thug, Mahood (Robert Mammone, The Matrix Reloaded). An unwelcome witness, Midori faces death only to be saved by Colin (Oscar winner Russell Crowe, Romper Stomper, Gladiator), the getaway driver, whose predilection for crime does not extend to senseless murder. Unfortunately, whilst rescuing Midori, Colin kills Mahood's younger brother, Gullbuddin (Salvatore Coco, Underbelly ), incurring the wrath of Mahood and his sinister father, Boorjan (Petru Gheorghiu, Bordertown). Pursued by this vengeful duo, as well as Midori's grief-crazed husband, Yukio (Kenji Isomura, The Cowra Breakout ), the pair flee across the country in their quest for freedom and fall passionately in love along the way.
