Storyline

Tom lectures his fellow townsfolk about embracing a time of change and it isn't long before changes begin to add a new and uncomfortable dimension to life in Emu Springs. A dramatic drop in the bore water level threatens the local farms and has Joe talking of conspiracies by the Bullandra farmers. Men's Health Week is on the agenda, promoted heavily by the radio station. Tom finds himself caught between the common-sense of the idea, and his natural resentment towards bureaucratic lecturing. Nothing is a bigger surprise than the sudden decision of popular local chemist Russell Redlich (Bruce Spence) to shut up shop, and leave town. Russell is the third generation of his family to run the local chemist shop, so his unexpected plans to depart arouse nostalgia, and memories of others who have left.
