Melbourne Festival 2015

Footscray with its motley mix of people and graffiti is a diverse and multicultural Melbourne suburb, the streets of which are bustling with the weirdest, but at the same time entirely ordinary people. On one such street, robust but goodhearted Les Underwood (John Brumpton) and his assistant Danny (Damian Hill), who has seen worse days, run a little pawnshop where the daily paths of various interesting citizens often cross. We will not learn to know all those characters, as there are too many of them, but we will see little fragments of their lives and pick up hints to their feelings and thoughts, worries and pleasures
