The Come Up Starter Kit

Originally released as a 6-part mini-series through 2016.

Helene McKenzie resides in the NSW regional town of Coonabarabran and is an avid astronomer just like her father was, working in the observatory that overlooks her small town. When a nearby and much newer observatory threatens its funding and research grants, Helene’s observatory is in danger of being shut down. Helene actively fights its closure and along with her team of misfit colleagues, she attempts to rally her small home town behind her. Plagued by a corrupt local council and hindered by a lazy town mayor, Helene’s prospects of saving her observatory are slim. When tragedy strikes on the eve of a big breakthrough, Helene may get the chance to save more than just her beloved observatory.

Produced with the support of the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
