Fourteen years ago Chris Rohrlach, an ordinary Aussie "bloke" , decided to marry his pregnant girlfriend Rachel after a stroke left her with quadriplegia. A GOOD MAN follows their remarkable relationship and determination to embrace life. A loving network of friends and extended family emerges around the couple and their two children. But when a drought hits the farm hard, Chris comes up with a bizarre scheme to make quick money- He decides to open a brothel! The venture puts all Chris' resources, his marriage and his family at risk. Deeply moving and surprisingly funny, A GOOD MAN will challenge the way you think about love, sex, fideility and disability.
