The Screen Guide

Don Henderson, once a hopeful writer but now a teacher, holds a party at his home to celebrate what he hopes will be a Labor victory at the Australian 1969 general election. His gathering of old friends, plus the convenient bar, barbecue and swimming pool, promise a convivial evening. But that is not how things turn out. Based on David Williamson's play.
