Once upon a time there was a tiny sugar-producing township called Tully in Far North Queensland, Australia. Tully is renowned for its endless sugar fields and...rain. One day the townsfolk were shocked by the devastating news that Brazil had dumped its sugar on the world market.
Not being one to knock back a challenge, life-time resident and Rotary Club member Ron Hunt calls a meeting with the town leaders to see what can be done to save Tully from financial rack and ruin. Ron proposes to build The World's Biggest Gumboot in honour of Tully's record rainfall of 7.98 metres in 1950.
As the boot goes further and further over the deadline, Ron starts to have misgivings. Six months later the town wants to know where their $90,000 boot is? How will this affect Ron's reputation? Will the Big Golden Gumboot, complete with the green frog clinging precariously to the side make a difference to the town's overall economy?
Only time will tell.
