A comedy set in a shearing shed out the back of beyond in Manawatu brings together a cast of misfits out to shear under the watchful eye of a couple of sheep. Pete is a tired clapped out shearer who has dropped out of the A team. Terry is a law student who has bluffed his way into a shearer's job for the summer and Dawn, the transvestite rousie has escaped from Wellington and its dark secrets. Meanwhile, in the wings two smart sheep - Eunice the Ewe and Aries the Ram offer their perspectives on life. Together with the boss of the shed, Dino and Jo his wife and Pete's daughter - we enter a world of romance, intrigue, star-crossed lovers and the excitement and tension of the Annual Golden Shears!
