'For generations, dressing up for Book Week has been an Aussie school tradition. But for high-school English teacher Nicholas Cutler (Alan Dukes), it’s the week from hell. Once a literary enfant terrible, and now simply a terrible man, he’s now struggling to instil a love of reading in teenagers who’d rather toy with their phones and dress up as movie superheroes. Trying to roll with these bad new times, Nicholas has penned a trashy zombie story. He’s tantalisingly close to a literary comeback – but it’ll be at the expense of his students, colleagues and long-suffering family. Will this be the week Mr Cutler finally has people’s backs, not paperbacks?'
