Synopsis

Fatigue is a fast-paced, dark, surreal action thriller set in a seedy underworld of guns and gangsters.

The story follows a small-time loser Mitchell Willow, a chronic alcoholic whose girlfriend, Rachel, has left him. In desperation, Mitchell takes a delivery job for local hard man Eddie Heaver. During his deliveries, curiosity gets the better of Willow and he opens one of Heaver's packages and to his horror discovers a severed thumb. He now realises it's time to get out, but there's one last delivery to make.

Heaver has ideas of his own, and plans to double-cross underworld figurehead Mr Wernside and set Mitchell up to take the fall. Mitchell and Eddie have to meet Wernside's psychotic right-hand man, Traven. The drop goes horribly wrong and descends into a fierce shoot-out. Mitchell ends up with a bag of diamonds, a gun and the mob hot on his heels. There's only one person he can turn to - Rachel. Can the two of them escape Wernside's heavies, keep the diamonds and start a new life together?
