Official Synopsis

“The Australian Men’s Cricket Team has suffered the most significant crisis in living memory when prominent team members are suspended after being caught cheating during a match in Capetown, South Africa.

In the shadow of the devastation, former champion batsman Justin Langer is appointed the new coach. He is charged with rebuilding the team’s culture and once again making Australians proud of their cricket team.

While the team rebuilds off the field, they also face drastic changes on the field, with a young side trying to live up to the acclaim that Australian cricket has achieved for decades. What was once the greatest team in the world, is now a young side desperately searching for its own identity and some winning form.

Tensions rise as Langer goes about trying to shape this young team and along the way he is confronted with the realisation that he too must make changes if they are to succeed. Alongside him are the new captains Tim Paine and Aaron Finch, both of whom are faced with their own challenges of form, character and leadership.

Their story covers 18 months as they travel across the globe. From England, Dubai, across Australia and into the heart of India, playing against a dominant Indian side and the world’s most passionate cricket fans. Amid their tours, they make pilgrimages to The Western Front and Gallipoli to better understand their own heritage and identity. And finally, they head to England to compete in the biggest sports competitions – The World Cup and The Ashes.

With unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the sport of cricket and exclusive interviews, the players tell their own stories. A story filled with trials and triumphs, heartbreak and humour.

Ultimately, we watch the team define a new era for Australian cricket.”
