Pobby And Dingan

Synopsis:
Set in contemporary Australia it is a timeless sort of tale from the outback. The Williamson family live in Lightning Ridge, New South Wales. It is opal territory, and the father is trying to stake his claim and strike it rich. Like most in the area he is fairly unsuccessful. There are two children: young ashmol, who narrates the story, and his younger sister, Kellyanne. and there are two other significant characters, Pobby and Dingan, Kellyanne's imaginary friends. Unfortunately, things take a bad turn when it appears that Pobby and Dingan are, as Kellyanne tearfully announces, "maybe-dead."
