Sydney Australia, sometime in the 1960s. Watched by family and friends, thirteen determined young Rugby League players commence a seminal year which finishes in triumph for some, tragedy for others. Welcome to the dangerous alleys of Sydney's inner west, in a time before credit cards, when working-class families bought household goods on hire purchase; when off-course gambling was a way of life and 'cockatoos' kept watch for local SP (Starting Price) bookies operating in every corner pub. Best and Fairest assembles a fractured mosaic of almost forgotten everyday lives, and creates a powerful impression of a culture and era now rapidly fading from memory.
