The Season 2015 single work drama

'The Season is a humorous insight into the inner workings of a family mutton bird shed on Dog Island (part of the Bass Strait Islands) during the six week harvest season of the mutton birds by Aboriginal Tasmanian people.' 'The story follows the highs and lows of the mutton bird season; with no TV reception and basic living conditions there are lots of shenanigans. Every problem is complicated by the island factor, dealing with extreme weather and ‘family’. There are plenty of tears, truths and laughs to be had during a birding season and at the Maynard’s shed it’s no exception.'
