It is 1965. There doesn’t seem to be too much going on in the ranks of the South Bendigo Communist Party. Even the presence of young recruit Martin Porter has done little to inject life into the weekly grind. While Martin’s mum frets about his inexplicable abandonment of the church, short hair and the army reserve, George and Eli Tassekis welcome him into their family like a second son. But Martin is an ASIO spy and he’s about to get his new friends into serious trouble.
The Spook, based on a true story from country Victoria, is a sad story hilariously told in true Gogolian style.
