When we are small we skip, jump, hide and feel every rain drop. Then we grow hair where it never used to be, the cubby falls to pieces and we stop hanging off clotheslines. The Hoist follows the lives of Tim and Max who are hurtling towards the end of school and the challenges of the real world.

At the heart of Tim and Max’s friendship is an elaborate scheme they first dreamt up when they were seven years old, hanging off a clothesline. But as the boys and their friends will learn, sometimes the most unexpected of explosions change the course of the most detailed plans.

The Hoist explores what happens after play and before responsibility; the moments that force us to realise that childhood is ending and we have to grow up.
