Lucky Miles is the story of illegal refugees arriving on the shores of Western Australia.   There's Cambodian Arun (Kenneth Moraleda), Iraqi Youssif (Rodney Afif) and Rameian (Srisacd Sacdpraseuth) who is the nephew of the boat's captain.  These three unlikely travelling companions find themselves in the middle of the outback fighting to survive and outrun the army reserve unit who is hot on their heels.
