A big crime comedy in a small Aussie town, a riotous premise that rollicks along at a cracking pace. Ridgy Didge is a story of love, crime, revenge, and bad karma, an emotional roller coaster that is a sometimes dark, but always fun character driven film.
Coober Ridge was once the stain on the underpants of Australia, riddled with crime and drugs. Until one day a traveling tent church arrived with gospel choir and the whole song and dance.
The preacher was rattling on about ridding the town of sinners and whatnot - when suddenly the earth shook, the sky filled with fire and outside it was no joke, raining money. The town cleaned up overnight. The locals will tell you it was a miracle and Christ knows they prayed for one... ...but a miracle?
To answer that, we start on the Friday of that fateful weekend and follow four stories that weave together like a tapestry until they crash together on Sunday morning changing the town forever. As for whether the church had much to do with it, I’ll let you be the judge of that. But bugger me, it was biblical.
