Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.

Production on the film began in March 2017. The Nightingale premiered at the 2018 Venice Film Festival and was later picked up by IFC Films for distribution.
