Paper Champions

1h 23m Comedy, Australia, Australian 2020

In a quirky, loveable story, Rey must rely on a Polynesian family, a Spanish dance teacher, and an ex-wrestler to help him become the Paper Champion.

After spending 10 years in a job he doesn’t like, a surge of inspiration causes Rey to quit, forcing him further outside his comfort zone than he’s ever ventured before. Slowly, his new life begins to take shape, but not without the help of his old work colleague and best mate Wade (John Tui, Solo: A Star Wars Story): a big man, with an even bigger heart. Wade and his cousins explain to Rey that he needs to find his Mana. To have Mana implies influence, authority, and efficacy - the ability to perform in a given situation. In the ropes of his mum’s new lover Terry’s (Gary Sweet, Police Rescue) wrestling ring, Rey begins to come out of his shell and find his Mana. After putting an old man in a coma, Rey crosses paths with the once the once unattainable Holly, and using his newfound confidence, Rey asks Holly out on a date. But just as their relationship begins to blossom, his old anxieties start get the best of him.
