  • It's Christmas, and Hilary and her son, Joey are going to visit her parents in the suburbs. Not only are they up for the problems between Joey and Hilary's boyfriend and his son, but they also face problems faced by other members of this Australian extended family.

  • Larceny, adultery, sabotage and treachery. Yes, just your average Christmas with the Dredge family. Twelve-year-old Joey Dredge is in trouble again. Expelled for jumping off the school roof again he's haunted by the death of his father and hates his mother's new boyfriend Bruno and his bully-boy son Angus. Compounding his misery is the knowledge he has to spend Christmas with them at the family beach house. Things look grim until the unexpected arrival of his great-grandfather Albert, fresh from a stint in prison. Forced to share the back shed with the swearing, farting, devious octogenarian who beats-up thugs when the occasion demands, Joey's life changes. Between barbecuing the family dog, performing a self-burial, and causing his intended step-father to consume a startling amount of hash, Joey learns a few life lessons from Albert, who despite his many vices installs within Joey the strength to accept the past and embrace the future.
