"This film tells a story of marginalised artistic endeavour taking place in a regional town in central Queensland, Australia. Its aim was to show how it is possible to maintain the rage while retaining personal and artistic integrity. 'A piss in the ocean' of mainstream sensibilities and the world of multinational entertainment entities it may well be, but the story of Cameron 'Bollox' Borg, the self-styled "punk who cared too much", reveals how anyone with determination and a love of the independent ethic of 'do it yourself' can perform music, publish books of potery [poetry], and support up and coming performers all the while staying true to what became labelled as 'punk', despite its mediatised appropriation of 'fuck-you' attitudes and howls of creative energy and well-documented corporatisation. To borrow from one of the leading poets of the recent (musical) past, anger may well be an energy, but it's in the many different ways that it's defined and applied that true changes can be made, so that one day, those ripples in the mainstream may well create waves too powerful to ignore"--Container.
