Two brothers, seemingly worlds apart in lifestyle and demeanour, share an uncomfortable reunion in the suburban home of their mother. Austin is the intellectual one...Lee is the misfit...when a smarmy Hollywood producer takes an interest in Lee's - and not Austin's - story idea for a Western, a psychological battle of sibling rivalry unfolds.
Australian premiere. After receiving a lukewarm review in "The Age", Carrillo Gantner scheduled a free performance for students, pensioners and the unemployed to encourage people to make up their own minds about the production.
