The Screen Guide

The Kerrigans live at 3 Highview Crescent, Coolaroo. Their home is right next to an airport, in fact, jumbo jets land right outside the back fence...but to the Kerrigans this humble abode is their castle. This peaceful happy-family existence is turned upside down when the Kerrigans and their neighbours receive a Compulsory Acquisition Notice, advising they will have to leave their home and despite the compensation involved, they decide to fight. Fight for their home, their family's way of life, their memories...their castle.
