Welcome to a place where machismo still flourishes, and the accepted ideas of what it is to be a man are harsh and unforgiving.
Set in Brisbane’s outer suburbs in the late ‘70s, Maiden is the story of battling greyhound trainer Mick (Russel Dykstra), desperate to give his family a better life.
Convinced that his latest charge is a champion in the making, Mick is prepared to gamble everything on a lowly race at a small country track that could have disastrous consequences.
