The Justice of Bunny King is the third feature written by Sophie Henderson (Baby Done), and the debut of director Gaysorn Thavat. Fiesty Bunny (Australian actor Essie Clarke, star of series Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries) is fighting government agencies to be reunited with her two children. Despite Bunny's determined efforts to land a job, find a rental and see her daughter on her birthday, she hits a brick wall. With little to lose Bunny decides on a far riskier path, picking up her niece Tonyah (Thomasin McKenzie, star of Jojo Rabbit and Leave No Trace) and heading out on a spontaneous and unpredictable road trip.
