From the makers of The Castle comes the heartwarming story of Australia’s Parkes Observatory’s role in relaying live television of man’s first steps on the moon.
The true story of a group of eccentric scientists who are responsible for manning a satellite dish inauspiciously located on a remote Australian sheep farm. Much to NASA’s alarm, the unconventional Aussie team — led by Cliff Buxton (Sam Neill) — are the world’s only hope for receiving the historic images of man’s first steps on the moon. With help from the colourful cast of local characters, the crew struggles to overcome a series of mishaps. Directed by Rob Sitch featuring Sam Neill, Billy Mitchell & Roz Hammond
