He's never known a dad, just his mentally ill, addict mum, Greta. So when she meets Chop, the first decent bloke they've ever known, Urban feels hope for the first time. For Chop, the once idealistic ex-social worker, it's a chance of redemption. He takes the broken family in, helps Greta., teaches Urban and his brother Frank lessons in life. But the family's new found happiness is all too fleeting as Greta's propensity to self-destruct proves too strong...leaving Urban to cope with the fallout the only way he knows how.

Heartfelt story with great performances
7 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

Poignant and heartfelt film based on Bernard Hare's memoir Urban Grimshaw and the Shed Crew. I've been eagerly anticipating the release of this film and was not disappointed. Great performances by all, especially from Fraser Kelly and Richard Armitage, who play their roles with sensitivity. There are glimpses of pain and love beneath their hardened exteriors. Also, there were some really striking shots--kudos to the cinematographer.

Watched this on Blenheim Films' site and thankful for Candida Brady's persistence and passion to get this finally released to a global audience.
