Rising surf star Jesse spends time chasing waves and girls, all the while living in the shadow of older brother Victor. Younger brother and emo teen Fergus, in the meantime, has a major crush on Jesse's surf buddy Andy.
When Jesse, Fergus and their beach bum friends go on a camping trip out on the dunes, confrontations arise and the young-sters are forced to come to terms with burgeoning emotions, life-changing decisions and a tragedy they didn’t see coming. A huge hit upon its release in Australia and subsequently on indie circuits in Japan and the USA, Newcastle now comes to the UK on a wave of acclaim. Featuring up-coming stars with a bright future ahead of them, music from established indie bands The Cloud Room and The Lemurs, and stunning cinematography from Richard Micha-lak, Newcastle is the perfect antidote should you be feeling that summer just won’t come soon enough...
