Australian Rules is the story of the bravery of one young man in a town ready to explode.Based on Phillip Gwynne's award-winning novel, Deadly Unna?, Australian Rules is the story of 16-year-old Gary Black (Nathan Phillips, Wolf Creek, Blood Vessel) - average football player, budding wordsmith and reluctant hero. Gary 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. On a night when the town's racial tensions boil over and tragedy strikes, Gary and Dumby's sister, Clarence (Lisa Flanagan, Strangeland), become entangled in a conflict with the townspeople, including Blacky's violent and abusive father, Bob (Simon Westerway, Underbelly).
