"Harry is the father, a widower who lives in a blue-collar suburb of Melbourne. His 24-year-old son Jeff, a plumber and football - or rugby - player, still lives at home, almost as much as a roommate to his father as a son. The added twist here is that Jeff is gay, and that Harry - who is straight - not only accepts his son's sexuality, he does everything he can to think of to encourage it ... This is one over-protective dad who's obviously invested too much of his emotional life in his son ever since his wife was killed in a traffic accident 14 years earlier. What he can't seem to realize is the extent to which his well-meant interventions interfere with Jeff's love life."--San Francisco Examiner, January 21, 1994
