Be the first in the world to see the story of Kid Snow: the down-and-out slugger with one last shot at the title in a travelling boxing tent show, as sweat and sand fly in a 1970s WA.

Phoebe Tonkin (Boy Swallows Universe) and Billy Howle (The Serpent) star in the story of a washed-up slugger given one last shot at the title from director Paul Goldman (Australian Rules, 2002; Ego: The Michael Gudinski Story, 2023). Kid Snow (Howle) wound up on the tent boxing circuit after squandering his chance at glory. Sunny (Tonkin) is a single mother who walks into Kid’s life just as he’s offered a lucrative rematch with the champ who floored him 10 years earlier. Goldman’s beautifully photographed film brings to life a distinctly Australian form of entertainment that’s now all but extinct, with an added mix of romance, blood, dust and redemption.
