It tells the story of a working-class Australian family who live adjacent to Melbourne's busy airport. The family is a close-knit group who love and support each other.

The plot centres on the family's desire to keep their home despite the compulsory acquisition order placed on it by the local authority.

Winner of the 'Best Original Screenplay' (AFI Awards) and 'Australian Movie of the Year' (Australian Movie Convention), ‘The Castle’ is a gently satirical film which has delighted audiences with its Australian humour.
