Back of Beyond is a dark psychological thriller centring on Petesy who works in a petrol station in the arsehole of nowhere. Petesy gets travellers of all sorts but today a young fella called Gabriel stops at the station to gather up supplies for a long road trip. But he is broke and demands that Petesy pay for the items out of his own pocket. Gabriel claims that there’s a rifle aimed to blow Petesy’s head off if he doesn’t service this request. Petesy must determine the truth of Gabriel’s threat and choose whether he’s been played for a dummy or take him for his word.
