Digger Kelly (Gary Sweet) and his son Jack (Ashley Bradnam) are carpenter builders in Hervey Bay, Queensland. The Kelly family is deeply involved in the community. Digger coaches the local rugby league team with his old mate Singlet (Bruce Spence), while Jack and his mate Solly (Aaron Fa'Aoso) play for the team. Mother Betty (Kris McQuade) does the books. Their world is threatened by the arrival of a southern property developer led by hot young executive Tiffany (Brooke Satchwell). Digger and his crew have long relied on local developer Harry (Steve Bisley) for work but when Harry goes belly up, the whole community is thrown into turmoil. Digger and Jack fall out and when Jack starts courting Tiffany for work, Digger accuses him of disloyalty. As the community unravels in the face of change, Jack strives to find a way out.
A comedy with a big heart and a lot of humour.
