Have a drink mate? Have a fight mate? Have a taste of dust and sweat mate? There's nothing else out here. Balanced on a knife-edge between social realism and existential horror this disturbing subversive portrayal of Australia's cultural underbelly failed to find a wide audience on its original release but has since become established as a seminal cornerstone of the Australian cinema. A middle-class schoolteacher stuck in a government-enforced teaching post in an arid backwater stops off in the mining town of Bundanyabba on his way home for the Christmas holidays. Discovering a local gambling craze that may grant him the financial independence to move back to Sydney for good the opportunity proves irresistible. But the bad decisions are just beginning and a reliance on local standards of hospitality in the Yabba may take him on a path darker than ever expected.
