Meet the terror named TwoBlackEyes, two tons of bone-breaking fury. And meet the unlikely friends who take on this primeval nightmare and ride it to the end. Welcome to the “Land of Ground Thunder Running”

TwoBlackEyes and The Unfinished Script is the story of a young man born into a privileged life in affluent Elbow Park, but with personal goals and ambitions at odds with his family’s plans for him. Leaving private school for the public system, Nathan Munro finds unexpected friendships in a film studies class where no subject is taboo. Meet Willie, who applies the dodge and duck tactics of welfare survival to the dangers of rodeo bull fighting; smart-mouthed Stevie, who endures the black and blue reality of family violence; and self-assured Kayden, who proves that getting bucked off a bull isn’t as painful as never trying. With the help of their mysterious and unorthodox teacher, Miss Emily Arbutus, the four friends challenge boundaries, face their fears and write their own futures.
