Starting as a student 'fun' project to being considered as Western Australia’s largest independent feature film, 
“The Decadent and Depraved” is set in the late 1880s in a remote 
and dark place in the outback of Western Australia telling 
the story of Leon Murphy who leaves his wife and child 
in a bid to ensure their safety. He is a wanted man but plans to 
surrender himself into the hands of Her Majesty’s army to be hanged. 
Unbeknownst to Leon, shortly after his departure his 
wife is murdered in cold blood. Moreover, their daughter 
Lillian is captured by a bunch of evil bounty hunters, 
led by the cruel and gruesome priest, Maitland. 

A tale of cat and mouse begins shortly thereafter as Leon is 
transported by Police Captain, Dalton, on route to 
be hanged in the local town. Dalton’s hopes for a trouble-free 
journey are quickly dashed as he is faced with a series of 
difficult obstacles – all consequences 
of transporting such a high value target. 
Within the ever-changing terrain of Western Australia, 
the truth about Leon’s crime and his motives for seeking 
punishment is revealed, leading everyone through 
a chaotic tumble of revenge and murder.
