Five senior Aussie men, some of them mates since war service, meet one morning each week in a gym. They exercise together, chew the fat, laugh, tease and sing. They solve the problems of the world, agreeing to disagree. When secrets, differences and loss of trust threaten to destroy the long established friendships, they learn that ‘difference’ is more a matter of point of view.

With a uniquely Australian voice, Codgers allows the WWII generation to look at themselves in the mirror; to celebrate their wisdom; challenges them to embrace change and accept the future.
