AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Max and Therese are happy together and with the world. They move into a new neighbourhood, a nice family on one side and, well, 'interesting' on the other side. But interesting becomes loud, and loud becomes intolerable - and when the intolerable becomes violent and the police are powerless, Max and Therese attempt to solve the problem themselves. A comedy about neighbours, amphetamines and large men with baseball bats.' (Source: Screen Australia)
