Damian Callinan adapts his entertaining and topical stage play for the big screen. Bodgy Creek is a struggling town and the footy team looks like it will have to merge or fold. Former football star Troy Carrington (Callinan) is coaxed into rescuing the team after striking up an unlikely friendship with young Neil whose mum Angie runs a nearby refugee support centre. They unite to recruit the new arrivals to save the team. An offbeat and uproarious Aussie comedy about footy, life in the country and the power of communities to overcome small-mindedness.
