Australian Rules is the story of 16-year-old Gary Black (Nathan Phillips, Wolf Creek) - average football player, budding wordsmith and reluctant hero. Gry helps his local Australian Rules football team win the local championship by accident, but celebrations turn to violence when Gary's Aboriginal best friend, Dumby Red (Luke Carroll, The Tender Hook) is denied the "Best and Fairest" medal because of the racism of local officials. In a night when the town's racial tensions boil over, Dumby Red is shot and killed and Gary becomes entangled in a conflict with his fellow townspeople, including his father. Australian Rules is the story of the bravery of one young man in a town ready to explode.
