The Merger
Release Date: 1st November 2018
Running Time: 103 minutes
Director: Mark Grentell
Main Cast: Damian Callinan, Kate Mulvany, John Howard

Bodgy Creek is a struggling town. The drought won't let up, jobs are scarce after the mill was shut down, and the footy team looks like it will have to merge with another club or fold. Living a hermit-like existence on the town's fringe, former football star turned 'Town Killer' Troy Carrington (Damian Callinan), is coaxed into rescuing the team after striking up an unlikely friendship with young Neil (Raffety Grierson) who is struggling with the recent loss of his father. Teaming up with Neil's mum Angie (Kate Mulvany, The Great Gatsby) who runs a nearby refugee support centre, they unite to recruit the new arrivals to save the team and take the community on a journey of change. But for some, like Neil's grandfather and Club President, Bull (fan-favourite, John Howard, SeaChange) and 'star' player Carpet Burn (Angus McLaren, Hotel Mumbai), it's more change than they're willing to take.
