Owyergoin'mate orright? An English-speaking Italian migrant attempts to come to grips with the Australian way of life.
Nino Culotta is an English-speaking Italian migrant trying to settle into Australian life. He arrives in Sydney to find that Most Australians speak English like I speak Hindustani, which I don't. In general, they use English words, but in a way that makes no sense to anyone else.
The language barrier means that Nino's assimilation is at times fraught with perplexity and frustration, but inevitably reveals the true Australian spirit - a little rough around the edges but friendly, independent and lovable.
