AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the outer reaches of Sydney, where the city bleeds into the bush, a tiger is on the loose. Meet the Unwins. Rachelle has made her special dessert. Eddie is home from a stint at Silverwater. His teenaged wife Kylie is about to give birth. Howl is dealing drugs again. Mum's on the brink of cardiac arrest. Six-year-old Brayd'n has a penchant for guns and Chuckles is five hours late for Christmas lunch. They don't call it the Silly Season for nothing.

''Tiger Country' is a comedy of sex, drugs, and the ugly secrets that weld a family together.'
