A film about an ordinary, infuriating, charming, obsessive, suburban dad who finally grows up. Meet Gazza Snell: entrepreneur, kart club president, and Man About Howick. His obsession with his teen boys' karting careers has alienated his wife and pushed his family to the financial brink. And yet he smiles through it all, equal parts Charmer, Great Dad, and Frustrating Bastard.

You probably know a guy just like him. The Hopes and Dreams of Gazza Snell is a father's "coming of age" about letting go and finding something much stronger to hold on to.
