“A Newcastle Tail”

In this heartwarming blockbuster based on true events, a runaway border collie is on the loose in downtown Newcastle. A single mum with a heart of gold named Jennie Herbertson (played by Drew Barrymore) resolves to catch the lost pet and find its owner. In order to succeed on her mission, she learns that nothing great can be achieved alone. She recruits the help of the local boozehounds, along with the CBD bus-stop crowd, to assist in capturing the feisty pup.

What Jennie doesn’t realise is that the boozehounds have a long-standing feud with the bus-stop crowd over some jewels that mysteriously went missing from the Civic park toilets during the Great Depression. When Jennie is out of earshot the two rival gangs hurl abuse and threats at each other!

But when the heedless puppy reappears down an alley with its head cocked to one side and a fish skeleton stuck in its fur, everyone’s heart melts and the boozehounds and the bus-stop crowd join together in a group hug. Jennie grabs the sheepish pup by the collar and smiles as she ruffles its fur, wondering what other newcastle pets might be in need of her help.
