Steve liked Celia from the moment they met. But following a clash with her boss, R'lene Beagle-Thorpe, Minister for employment, he finds himself on national television, branded Australia's biggest dole bludger. Now Steve has to prove to Celia, to himself and to the whole country, that there's more to him than meets the eye. With a little help from his friends, he might just do it. As long as he can keep his best friend Frank away from Annie, Celia's little sister... and protect Frank's cousin Dom, from Tony, the insane local crime lord to whom Dom owes money... and prevent Theo, an enterprising neighbour, from throwing himself in front of a car to collect insurance.
