During the Christmas holidays, Hilary Dredge (Susan Lyons) and her son, Joey (Daniel Kellie), travel up into the suburbs to spend Christmas with Joey's grandparents. To accompany them on the trip, Hilary's boyfriend Bruno (Peter Rowsthorn) and his son Angus (Christopher Chapman) go with them. Joey doesn't like Bruno because of his relationship with his mother. Joey and Angus have a violent rivalry with each other because of this, as Angus doesn't like it when Joey shows disrespect to his father.
Swann made the film after his successful short Bonza.
