FP 4,000(CDN) Wildly inventive, funny and profoundly moving, A LONG WAY FROM HOME opens in 1953 with the arrival of the tiny, handsome Titch Bobs, his beautiful doll of a wife, Irene, and their two children in the small town of Bacchus Marsh. Titch is the best car salesman in southeastern Australia. Irene loves her husband, and loves to drive fast. Together they enter the Redex Trial, a brutal endurance race around the ancient continent, over roads no car is designed to survive. With them is their neighbour and navigator, Willie Bachhuber who calls the turns and creek crossings on a map that will lead them, without warning, away from the white Australia they all know so well.
