Brett Sprague is just out of jail. Reunited with his mum Sandra and brothers Glenn and Stevie, he's ready to reclaim his life. But things have changed while Brett has been inside. Girlfriend Michelle may have moved on, Glenn's moved out and Stevie is about to be a dad. As Brett's disruptive force takes hold, tensions flare and Brett embarks on a drink-fuelled rampage, sweeping his brothers along with him - with terrifying consequences. Twenty-one years ago, audiences were lining the streets to see the original Griffin production of The Boys. Since then, it's become a classic of the Australian stage and screen, winning along its way an AWGIE and four AFI Awards.
