His other brother Glenn (Polson) is now married to Jackie (Cronin) who wants him to stay out of trouble. Also greeting Brett is girlfriend Michelle (Collette) but the volatile duo are soon arguing furiously. As Brett gets drunker and more stoned, he also becomes more enraged, leading to a brutal crime.
