This emotional documentary begins as an intimate portrait that quickly expands into broader social observation of teenage self-discovery; both the darkest and brightest places in youth. Shot over eight days over two seasons, summer and winter, the film uses a trans-genre, verite approach in which the subject seems to be directing the movement of the film as equally as the filmmakers behind the camera. This is the coming of age journey of a teenage outsider who confronts obstacles with courage and awareness.

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. These were desperate times, the economy at an all-time low. Hollywood studio executives controlled the local cinemas with a rod of iron, screening only their own productions. The profits were shipped straight back to Los Angeles. Few Australian filmmakers got a cinema release and Kathner was no exception. It was at a screening of a pilot for one of his films to studio execs that he met a woman who would change his life. Alma Brooks (Victoria Hill) was working as a secretary at the studio when she met Rupe. When they paired up, a revolutionary filmmaking duo was born.
