The story of Billy Williams(Cliff Curtis) is set in the (fictional) small town of Waimatua. Billy is trying to organise the biggest celebration the town has even seen - the 75th Jubilee of their school. In doing this, feckless Billy is trying to redeem himself in the eyes of his family, especially his frustrated wife Pauline (Theresa Healey). However trouble arrives with the return of a local former All Blacks Captain, and old flame of Pauline's. This comedy will probably lose much on non-New Zealanders, still is worth a viewing.
