Summary
Peter 'The Plum' Lum is an ex-footy star, living with his son and girlfriend in Cronulla. It's a pretty cruisey life until he learns that he has developed a brain disorder from the thousand-odd head knocks he took during his career. According to his neurologist, Plum has to make some changes - right now - or it's dementia, or even death. Reluctantly, Plum embarks on a journey of self-care and self-discovery - not easy when all he's ever known is to go full tilt at everything. On top of this, he's being visited by dead poets and discovers he has a special gift for the spoken word. With the friendship of Bukowski, Plath and some local misfits, Plum might just be able to stop hurting the ones he loves and, in doing so, find his true voice
