Coetzee), where the magistrate (played by Mark Rylance) of an isolated frontier settlement on the border looks forward to an easy retirement – that is, until the arrival of Colonel Joll (Johnny Depp), whose task it is to report on the activities of the mysterious ‘barbarians’ and stabilise the security situation along the border.

Joll then conducts a series of ruthless interrogations and raids, which leads the magistrate to question the nature of Empire and his loyalty to the Imperium.
