Rupert Kathner (Ben Mendelsohn) always had stars in his eyes. He wanted to make movies and wanted the whole world to see them. In the mid 1930s, his dreams led him to Sydney, the then movie capital of Australia where he met and married the supportive and faithful Clarice, with whom he had a son, Paul.
