Harry Joy is the blessed Australian – a childhood of mystical innocence, a home stuffed with love, he brings a smile to all he meets. Then, one warm afternoon on the front lawn, he dies. It’s only for a few minutes – he’s revived. But the world he wakes to is changed; his wife, children and friends all now seem avaricious monsters.

During a visit to Centrelink she meets Felicity, whose oddball dad wants her to take over the family butchery and speaks to her mother’s ashes in an urn.

But maybe, just maybe, they can stretch their own qualifications to fit…

What does it mean to be a good Muslim boy? You probably shouldn’t gawk at girls in bikinis or fake a medical degree. If you must be an actor, you shouldn’t play a gay man on television, or Saddam Hussein in a post 9/11 American musical. And you definitely, definitely shouldn’t leave an arranged bride at the altar.

You’re forgiven if the name of actor, comedian and raconteur Arthur Kwick doesn’t exactly ring any bells. Despite an unexpectedly notable performance at the Tivoli Theatre in 1969, his career ever since has seen him take any role that has come his way..even if that’s meant hosting off-the-wall stag nights or working as an all-weather clown at children’s parties. Now he has another job, a job that’ll test his mettle, question his core beliefs and could well be the most challenging of his life.
