The Screen Guide

The Lady Gorillas are a down-and-out basketball team from the country town of Goondi. They are at the bottom of the regional basketball ladder and are scheduled to play the last match of the season against The Sharks, who are not only at the top of the ladder, but are also mean and dirty players. There are five main players for the Lady Gorillas, and they're a hopeless lot, covering the gamut of 'social problems'. The last match of the season is about to commence, and the Lady Gorilla's coach, Graham, has no reason to think that for once, just for once, the Lady Gorillas might win!
