The series tells the true story of the Milperra massacre, when the Bandidos and the Comancheros motorcycle clubs went to war on Father's Day, Sunday 2 September 1984. The massacre had its beginnings after a group of Comancheros broke away and formed the first Bandidos Motorcycle Club chapter in Australia. This resulted in intense rivalry between the two chapters. At a public swap meet at the Viking Hotel at Milperra, a brief but violent battle ensued with seven people shot dead, including a 14 year old innocent bystander. A further 28 people were wounded with 20 requiring hospitalisation

Alone and adrift after his discharge from the Navy, Anthony ‘Snoddy’ Spencer discovers the seductive world of the outlaw bikie - and the formidable force that is Jock Ross – Supreme Commander of the Comancheros. In the late seventies and early eighties, all bikies wanted to do was drink, party and ride bikes. That – and the odd brawl with other clubs. It's a life-style Snoddy takes to with ease. He meets Lee through a fellow ‘nom’ (nominee) and a relationship develops. Jock is recruiting, and Snoddy helps lure Caesar Campbell, a biker with a fearsome reputation, into joining the club. But it is Snoddy’s part in a brawl with rival club - The Loners - that finally wins his brothers’ respect … and full membership of the Comancheros.

Now a fully-fledged member, Snoddy does his best to calm bristling egos when Caesar Campbell and his brothers threaten to become a club within a club. Caesar’s brothers join the Comancheros as Jock’s recruiting continues. Jock’s military drills are not to everyone’s taste and the Campbells are showing signs of discontent. When an explosives expert, Kraut, is recruited as a nominee, the Campbells are ready to look for another club. But Snoddy calms the waters and a new clubhouse is found overlooking Sydney Harbour. The new clubhouse is a great success – until the Campbells accuse Jock of breaking his own rules. To avoid the scrutiny of a meeting, Jock splits the club into two chapters.
