The iconic Aussie documentary RATS IN THE RANKS meets Thornton Wilder’s OUR TOWN in this brand new comedy about the cut-throat world of politics and media spin.
In the small Australian town of McGuffin Park, the local council is thrown into disarray when the mayor suddenly resigns a week before the mid-term election, despite being a shoo-in to keep his seat. When a self-proclaimed ‘sovereign citizen’ with an anti-government agenda is revealed as next in line for the top job, two friends step up and announce their rival candidacies. Complicated pasts, a meddling journalist and blackmail rumours push friendships to the limit – can they handle the mess of politics? Or will their friendship crumble under the pressure? Buckle up for a bumpy election ride!
The iconic Aussie documentary RATS IN THE RANKS meets Thornton Wilder’s OUR TOWN in this brand new comedy about the cut-throat world of politics and media spin.
