Charlie and Boots

When Charlie McFarlane (Paul Hogan) withdraws from his life after a family tragedy, his estranged son, "Boots" (Shane Jacobson), decides to drag his reluctant father on a trip to fulfil their lifelong ambition to fish off Australia's northern tip in Cape York. When joined by a young and upbeat hitchhiker, they are compelled to view their relationship in a new light. Old wounds are reopened and family secrets are revealed against a backdrop of beautiful landscapes and new perspectives. A heartfelt journey starring two of Australia's great comic talents and directed by Dean Murphy ('Strange Bedfellows').
