'‘Digger’ has abandoned his post and retreated to a bush shanty; living happily alone with his billy always on the boil, ‘Bluey’ by his side and an unshakeable memory of something more than mateship. A storm is brewing and an unexpected turn in the weather ushers in a magical therapist to set things str8, in a Practically Perfect way.
'Sad Digger Mad Mary is an unauthorised, unorthodox and unnerving depiction of a man confronting his desires and resisting forced reassimilation into society after service to the motherland, whatever that means. Let’s throw two coins in the air and see where they land this time around.'
