Chris Lilley is at it again with his latest mockumentary series 'Angry Boys'!
Ever since their father died, Daniel and Nathan have dreamt of fulfilling his dream to rebuild their run down property. When Nathan is caught breaking the law, Family and Community Services representatives suggest he be sent to a school for the deaf, in the city, so he can learn sign language and other life skills. Daniel is upset. He wants Nathan to stay and help him on the farm.
Powerless to stop it, Daniel is determined to make Nathan the best farewell party ever. He invites his heroes from the ‘Wall of Legends’ posters above his bed to the party: the U.S. rapper, S.mouse; Japanese champion skateboarder Tim Okazaki; and former world champion surfer, Blake Oakfield. Daniel enlists the help of their grandmother, Gran, who works as an officer at a juvenile prison. She is certain she can secure the celebrities to come to Dunt, despite the scepticism of Daniel’s mum and her new boyfriend, Steve.
As they live worlds away from Dunt, getting the ‘Wall of Legends’ to attend Nathan’s farewell, won’t be easy. Based in the U.S, rap sensation S.mouse is coming down from the success of his hit single ‘Slap My Elbow’ and plotting his next record. Tired of producing the ‘safe’ music that his record company demands to keep in line with his squeaky clean image, S.mouse wants to prove that he’s an artist in his own right and hopefully gain the respect of his peers along the way.
Since moving to Japan, American born Tim Okazaki’s skateboarding career has really taken off. The move was his dictatorial mother/manager Jen’s idea. From an early age, Jen has been instrumental in orchestrating Tim skateboarding career. Off the back of Tim’s achievements, Jen has built up a successful business empire - 'Gaystyle Enterprises' - and is determined to keep the profits rolling in, despite Tim’s increasing dissatisfaction.
Depending on who you ask, there’s a lot of respect for former world champion surfer, Blake Oakfield in his coastal hometown of Narmucca Bay. Since giving up his surfing career, most of Blake’s energy, much to the frustration of his pregnant wife, is spent with the ‘Mucca Mad Boys’ the surfie gang he co-founded. Hanging out with the boys, overseeing the initiation of new members and protecting their turf from the neighbouring surfie gang, is a full time job for Blake.
But if anyone can get the ‘legends’ to Dunt, it’s Gran – Ruth Sims. Feisty and resourceful, Gran is a force to be reckoned with. Looking after juvenile delinquents for most of her life, she certainly knows how to be persuasive. With luck, Gran will help give Nathan the biggest send-off party Dunt has ever seen.
