The Gods of Wheat Street

Completed

The Gods of Wheat Street is a 6 x 1 hour television drama series that transports the audience into the world, hearts and humour of a modern Aboriginal family of local legends.

Head of the family before his time, Odin Freeburn is being pulled in all directions. As a young boy twenty years ago he promised his dying mother he would keep the family together. Now he has one brother in jail, another brother is in love with the daughter of the family enemy, and his wife has run away to the city leaving him to raise their two daughters. His employer has just died, his sister-in-law is in love with him, and the spirit of his mother Eden has come back on a mission to protect the important destiny of the Freeburn line….. just a normal day for Odin Freeburn.

But there are schemes against him and pressure is mounting for Odin. Can he let go of his past in time to save the future?
