Sydney, Australia 1953, a city in the grip of a deadly crime wave. In just over a year more than one hundred people were poisoned. The shocking truth is that most of the killers were women.

Recipe For Murder follows the detectives cracking the cases, the media fuelling the crime wave and the women standing trial. Based on actual courtroom transcripts and newspapers of the time, the film combines gritty archive with stunning film noir re-enactments, interviews with witnesses and a music score from “Animal Kingdom” composer Antony Partos.
