After a stint as a music venue proprietor, Geoff Maddox is getting on with his life: managing his complex domestic situation; visiting the local shopping mall: and socialising with the regulars at the Stella Maris Hotel. This routine is disrupted by a fateful encounter with a young dancer, Amber, and the reappearance of an unsavoury character from his past. His life is rerouted into an undisciplined quest to fulfil his desire and prove himself. Maddox is a fast-paced, blackly comic ride around the inner workings of a man with time on his hands.
