A left field solution to their woes comes in the form of former football star Troy Carrington (Damian Callinan) Having fallen out with the community over leading protests that led to the closure of the local timber mill, Troy is living like a hermit on the town’s fringe. However, he is coaxed into coaching after striking up an unlikely friendship with young Neil (Rafferty Grierson). Teaming up with Neil's mum Angie (Kate Mulvany), who is running a nearby refugee support centre, they conspire to recruit refugees to save the team. However, the plan is not well received by Neil’s grandad and Club President Bull Barlow (John Howard), who leads a concerted protest to undermine the refugee’s settlement.
Filled with belly-shaking laughs and love for not only football but our fellow humans who come to Australia to escape horror and find a home, THE MERGER is an Aussie comedy to treasure.
