Amaze Your Friends is a wild and funny trip through the underside of Sydney at the turn of a decade - a world of bodgies and beatniks, reefer smoking and pill popping. It's Sydney 1959 and Billy, lurk merchant and low life, can't take a trick.

The past has caught up with him as Sydney's meanest, crookedest cop wants ten thousand pounds to keep the peace.
