SPIKE UP is a blackly edgy tale of a veteran police officer (Roy Billing) whose life appears to be at a crossroads through an encounter with a drug-addled aboriginal, his wife's infidelities and a younger undercover police officer's drug addiction (Marcus Graham). The film's climax is both startling and revealing about police life, a terrific short film.
