Debut Feature by Ren Thackham

Coober Ridge is a beautiful little town and a charming place to visit, but it never used to be. It used to be the stain on the underpants of Australia, full of crime, drugs and dodgy characters. One fateful weekend a traveling church came to town and on Sunday morning Father Jeff took to the pulpit. As he spoke about ridding the town of sinners and whatnot, the earth shook, the sky filled with fire and when the townspeople walked outside, it was fair dinkum raining money.


But this isn’t a story about miracles.

Ridgy Didge is an action-comedy following a tapestry of stories from the Friday morning of that fateful weekend until they crash together on a Sunday, changing the town and the townspeople forever.
