A MULTI AWARD-WINNING DRAMA ABOUT THE LIFE OF FORMER AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER, BOB HAWKE
For a decade Bob Hawke was the most-loved, most powerful man in Australia. He battled social injustice, political foes and personal demons with a ferocity that took no prisoner. As leader of the nation, he would sacrifice family, friends...everything, except the love of his life.
This is his story - the tale of the larrikin Prime Minister and his hard-talking, hard-drinking lust for power, world peace and a beautiful young writer called Blanche.
