A dark revelation leads Harry, a gentle factory welder to the realisation that the world around him is driven by empty sex and shallow desires. Going against the grain in the juvenile culture he is trapped in, he strives for chivalry. As Harry's moral dilemmas intensify and corner him we fear for his life as his world caves in. DOGGY, a profound and treacherous story of betrayal.

OUR BOY TOMMY, set in the 1970's among a grungy and twisted surf culture. All eyes are on Tommy Page in this adolescent tragedy as his dark side manifests in a wild and naive series of life-changing moments. A complex and inspiring story of independence.
