Set in rural Country Victoria, Playground tells the story of soon-to-be-married Stew and his childhood best friend Clint who go on a weekend camping trip in the bush. As Stew prepares to leave his country roots and move to the inner Melbourne suburbs with his fiancée Liz, tensions simmer between the friends, exposing the complex nature of their history and friendship. Meanwhile, lurking in the distance, someone (or something) watches them, surveying their every move.
Playground is a celebration of Australian cinema, culture and landscape – it is a film which explores the significant chasm between urban and rural lifestyles and the deep personal intricacies which can plague and severely impact relationships.
