Storyline

In Sydney, Tracey Heart is a thirty-two years old manager of a video shop ex-addicted in heroin and clean for four years. She is trying to raise forty thousand dollars to buy a shop for computer games on the next door of the rental and become partner of her boss, but based on her negative records, the banks deny the loan. Tracey takes care of her junkie stepfather Lionel Dawson, unsuccessfully trying to make him quit his heroin habit. When her former boy-friend Jonny returns from Vancouver, Tracey's mother Janelle fears a fall of Tracey, while she blames Jonny for the car accident where her son Ray lost one leg. When Ray and Jonny associate to Moss, the assistant of the retired criminal boss Bradley 'The Jockey' Thompson, in drug dealing, Tracey is convinced by Jonny to join them and raise the necessary money for her business along the weekend.

Strong roles for Oz and NZ stars
2 September 2005 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

About time we had a good script with strong characters for some of the Antipodes' best stars. A film that will appeal on different levels, depending on your background and knowledge of Sydney, its "little Saigon" and its drug subculture. The "little fish" are both the junkies (current and ex) treading water or drowning not waving in the cruel sea of a modern society, and the fish-shaped sauce containers that the latest crop of drugs come in. Hugo Weaving and Sam Neill are brilliant in roles that have borrowed much from Oz sporting and media characters, Noni Hazelhurst is convincing as a suburban mum weighed down by lack of love and betrayal. Martin Henderson completes the family as the disabled, junkie boofhead brother. Cate Blanchett is more than passable as the recovering junkie, still living in the middle of the milieu she is trying to escape. Cabramatta and its Vietnamese community also star, with Dustin Nguyen and his family reflecting the Oz/Viet cultural mix. A film that will appeal strongly to Oz moviegoers, but strong enough also to be appreciated by an international audience.
