Dougie Waters (Andrew S. Gilbert, Dirty Deeds) loves nothing more than a weekend Barbie and a cricket match with his mates. But his paradise is destroyed when his best mate and neighbour Norm is forced to leave town and their new boss, a pompous English administrator called Edward Lords (Felix Williamson, The Great Gatsby) moves in. The animosity between the two peaks during a cricket match when Dougie hits a ball that accidentally stuns Edward's prize winning cat, Dexter. The cat's fate is captured by Dougie's son on camera and uploaded onto YouTube where it instantly goes viral! The idea of a backyard cricketing challenge is hatched, with the winner keeping all that remains of Edward's deceased cat, Dexter. The two teams battle it out in the greatest game of backyard cricket ever...the Backyard Ashes. Also featuring John Wood (Gold Logie winner for Blue Heelers) and comedian Damian Callinan, Backyard Ashes is an entertaining family comedy that uses the famous Australian pastime of backyard cricket as an analogy for the bitter sporting rivalry between England and Australia.
