Summary
A young Englishman teaching in an outback school sets off to spend his summer vacation in Sydney but doesn't make it beyond the nearby mining town known as 'the Yabba'. He is engulfed by the slightly sinister mateship of the locals with its undertow of repressed sexuality and squalid violence. The excess of this alcoholic nightmare is held in check by rough humour
