Storyline

"The Gods of Wheat Street" is a 6 x 1 hour television drama series that transports the audience into the world, hearts and humour of the Freeburns, a modern Aboriginal family of local legends. Each episode spans a few hectic days with a touch of magic and enough deadpan humour to help our characters rise above obstacles that would bring mere mortals to their knees - and get on with the important matters of love, family and football. Head of the family before his time, Odin Freeburn is being pulled in all directions. As a young boy 20 years ago he promised his dying mother he would keep the family together. Now he has one brother in jail, another brother is in love with the daughter of the family enemy, and his wife has run away to the city leaving him to raise their two daughters. His employer has just died, his sister-in-law is in love with him, and the spirit of his mother Eden has come back on a mission to protect the important destiny of the Freeburn line...just a normal day for ...

...a must c
26 May 2014 | by (STHLM) – See all my reviews

family, devotion, friendship, brotherhood, responsibility, LOVE, strength and honor- those are the words that comes on my mind after watching the whole season- simply one of the best TV Shows. The title refers to the home of main characters livin' in. Mother dies in a car accident leaving behind four children. Just before she dies makes the oldest child to promise to always keep them all together. As always in life they have to struggle with the obstacles coming along their path... Each one of us will find a reflection of our character, or even a reflection of the story. I liked all the characters even the "evil" ones as they played it very convincing.
