    A delightfully winning comedy, Oyster Farmer is the story of Jack Flange, an enterprising young man, who robs a fish market and mails the cash to a secluded close-knit community of oyster farmers. When the parcel goes missing, and the police start coming around, he suspects the precious package was found by one of his neighbors, a local beauty named Pearl, to whom he becomes irresistibly attracted. Filmed along Australia's breathtakingly beautiful Hawkesbury River, Anna Reeves' deliciously surprising Oyster Farmer is a comedy about love, community and freshly shucked oysters.
