Boredom turns to cruelty on a remote construction site.
Accidents is a tale of masculine relations going wrong in a work gang on a remote and spectacular New Zealand construction site.
Jack, a young city boy, finds himself out of place amongst his hardened work-mates. Chug is charismatic but a bully. Tamati helps Jack but keeps his distance and Ron the boss, although fair, is often absent from the site. While Ron is away things tend to go wrong.
Boredom fuels growing tensions within the gang. A series of accidents escalates these tensions until Jack's desire to take some action to prove his manhood brings about the most fateful accident of all.
