Rams: In remote Western Australia, two estranged brothers, Colin (Sam Neill) and Les (Michael Caton) are at war.
Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family’s prized bloodline, the two men work side-by-side yet are worlds apart.
When Les’s prize ram is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, authorities order a purge of every sheep in the valley.
While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance.
But can the warring brothers set aside their differences and have a chance to reunite their family, save their herd, and bring their community back together?
Bill and Ted Face the Music: The stakes are higher than ever for the time-travelling exploits of William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. and Theodore “Ted” Logan.
Yet to fulfil their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it.
Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends – to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe.
