The First Step On The Moon Nearly Stumbled On Earth.

It's the biggest event since sheep invented wool! Apollo 11's astronauts will walk on the moon - and the 1,000 ton satellite dish in tiny, sheep farming Parkes, Australia, will beam the event globally. But as giddy citizens prepare for the moment when the world will depend on them, the dish flatlines. And its quirky Aussie crew and by-the-book NASA supervisor from the U.S. have very different ideas about how to fix it.

A culture clash of comic proportions erupts in this fact-based tale of how the biggest televised event in history was almost not televised. The Dish with Sam Neill, Patrick Warburton and others portraying a spirited array of techies and townies, "will send you to the moon and back laughing" (Bruce Kirkland, The Toronto Sun).
