About This Show

Part Shakespearian tragedy and part gangster flick, Mercy Thieves pays homage to film-noir and "road movies" as it traces one night in the lives of Mike and DJ, two hired thugs who’ve been given an important mission: to find Harry. But Harry proves to be elusive, and so the two set off on an epic journey across Australia, encountering (and casually killing) many of their old friends and colleagues in their search for Harry’s whereabouts. As the night wears on and the bodies pile up, the duo discusses everything from their family lives to the subject of death, and an intimate portrait of friendship and loyalty begins to emerge.
