    • Synopsis
    • A warm-hearted musical comedy set in the historic fishing village of Stormy Bay.
      ‘Jules Orwell’ has a life-long obsession with INXS music and runs a cafe called “The Oceania”. It is a shrine to the fabulous 80’s era of rock and roll and to the world’s sexiest rock band.
      Every ‘dish’ is named after an INXS song, with Jules, and her willing staff, happy to sing any of them at the drop of a hat!
      Jules’s daughter, Natalie works as a waitress in “The Oceania”... This mother-daughter relationship is forever strained and ultimately put to the test when the harmony of the town is threatened by a giant mining conglomerate’s plans to demolish the historic town, dredge the pristine bay and build a massive coal loading facility. At risk is a unique marine environment and idyllic lifestyle that has survived harmoniously for generations…till now!
      Jules and the townsfolk of Stormy Bay use the power of music in their struggle to beat the ruthless mining giants, who are determined to win at any cost.
      Kiss The Dirt mixes loyalty, friendship and unrequited love with a splash of ‘original sin, beautiful girl and the devil inside....’
      An international story about fighting for your dreams... A small seaside community, bonded by music, unwittingly becomes the symbol of inspiration for every ‘Stormy Bay’ around the world, as they fight to save their town, their lives, and their piece of paradise.
