Pete Bullock, successful Gold Coast hinterland sewage pumpout contractor, lives with wife Marge and arts student son Jamie in his lovely Nirvana Waters home.
But he has a few problems. For thirty seven years, he has slaved to build a business to hand on to his kids. Ten years ago, his older son Michael disappeared. Now younger son Jamie tells Pete he wants to be 'a poet, not a shit carter.'
On top of this, Pete's just had a run-in with the council's health inspector following a spillage outside the mayor's house. His contract, his business, is under threat. Then there's his heart. His doctor's told him he has to stop work yesterday. Or else.
