What follows is a chaotic, outrageous and hilarious sequence of events as a myriad of characters intersect: a visually-impaired assassin who takes his carer to every job, an arrogant disability activist who has filmmaking aspirations of his own, a self-obsessed sound recordist whod rather be making soft porn, and a B-grade actor who thinks he can do disability better than anyone else. Deep in the harsh Australian outback, as Darren and James do their best to solve the unsolvable, these hopelessly-flawed characters will be exposed and conflicted, their dastardly plans will collide and not all of them will make it back. Sometimes awkward, occasionally uncomfortable and always unpredictable, this is a film that will confront, challenge and forever change mainstream views of intellectual disability. Through a myriad of characters some with intellectual disabilities and some without it boldly and unashamedly seeks to discover what it is to be a man, what it is to be different and what it is to be normal.
Starring and co-written by three men with intellectual disabilities, Down Under Mystery Tour is a unique, quirky comedy with a schmaltz-free heart. At its centre is Malcolm, an ambitious but single-minded director who wants to make a TV show featuring two hot blonde women travelling around Australia. They solve mysteries, go to pubs, and generally &́#x80;œlook hot&́#x80;. But his vision is falling apart. His producer thinks theyll get more funding if they use two intellectually-disabled men instead and shes hired Darren and James, whove never solved a mystery before and dont &́#x80;œlook hot&́#x80; at all. Malcolm isnt happy: he thinks his stars are as useless as &́#x80;œtits on a bull&́#x80; and hell do whatever it takes -- sabotage, violence, voodoo and murder -- to get them off his set.
