Synopsis

Thomas (Paolo Rotondo), Jack (Robbie Magasiva) and Wayne (Scott Wills) are the best of mates. Each of them lives their life the way they play pool. Thomas is either absolutely brilliant or absolutely crap. Jack is always slick, cool and forever setting up the next shot. Wayne bumbles his way through life happy to be the guy that always says the wrong thing at the wrong time. During the high-stakes underground eight-ball tournamment run by Daddy (Enrico Mammarella), a Greek crime lord, they encounter a weird and wonderful collection of people on their way to the big prize. As well as the tournament, Thomas is at turning point in his life. He's lost his job, his girlfriend and the roof over his head. But as the game goes on he finds himself being pursued by the feisty Sara (Anne Nordhaus).
