Thou Shalt Not Steal Plot

Thou Shalt Not Steal centres around Robyn, portrayed by Sherry-Lee Watson, a young First Nations woman who embarks on a journey to uncover a mysterious family secret. Escaping from detention, she reluctantly teams up with Gidge (McDonald), an awkward teenager.

This journey takes them from a small central desert community on a perilous road trip across the outback. Along the way, they seek answers, confront life’s harsh realities, and form a bond that will change them forever.

The stakes are high as they are pursued by Maxine (Otto), a sex trafficker whose taxi Robyn stole, and Gidge’s domineering father Robert (Taylor), a fraudulent preacher.
