In this Barry Award-nominated classic, Damian brings to life Bodgy Creek, a township that has seen better days. The mill has closed, the Tidy Town sign has fallen into the long grass, and no-one knows why the Christmas Market happens in September. The dying town is about to claim its next victim: the footy club.

To save the club he embarks on a programme to recruit refugees and unwittingly takes the community on a journey of change.
