We don't choose to be born, but can we choose to be free? Around The Block is the story of American Dino Chalmers (Christina Ricci), an edgy and charismatic drama teacher with a passion for Shakespeare. When the opportunity arises for her to work at a school in inner-city Sydney, she embraces the chance to introduce the magic of the theatre to her students, opening their eyes to a world of opportunity far removed from the troubles of the inner city streets they've grown up around. The story centres on the developing relationship between Chalmers and Liam (Hunter Page), a sixteen-year-old Aboriginal boy who despite his family and past, wants to embrace this chance to live his truth. Around the Block gives us an intimate insight into how a 16 year old Aboriginal boy can teach as much to his teachers and elders as he can learn from those who believe in him; an emotional and aspirational journey of hope, triumph and believing in yourself against the odds.
