Backyard Ashes is a new Independent Australian Film, created, based and filmed in rural Wagga Wagga, NSW. It is an entertaining family film that uses the famous Australian past time of backyard cricket as an analogy for the bitter sporting rivalry between England and Australia.

Dougie Waters loves nothing more than a weekend barbie and cricket match witj his mates.  But his paradise on earth is destroyed when his best mate and neighbour, Norm is forced to leave town and their new boss, a pompous English administrator called Edward Lords, moves in.

The animosity between the two peaks during one fateful backyard cricket match, when Dougie hits a ball that accidentally stuns Edward’s prize winning cat, Dexter.  The cat falls into the roaring BBQ and is instantly incinerated, leaving only ashes.

Dougie’s son captures footage of the unfortunate event on camera and it is uploaded onto YouTube where the video instantly goes viral!   The idea of a backyard cricketing challenge is hatched, with the winner keeping the ashes of Edward’s deceased cat, Dexter.  The two teams battle it out in the greatest game of backyard cricket ever for the Backyard Ashes.
