Twelve year old Greg has inherited his macho father's competitive streak and needs to be the center of attention. On a family holiday in Fiji they have different ideas about what it takes to be a man. When his behavior fails to amuse his father, Greg set out to win him back while still staying true to himself. Greg shows that remaining the "#1 Son" requires a certain amount of ingenuity. Director Hannah Hilliard's humorous tale is based on a true story and won the top prize at the Berlin Film Festival. Principal cast: Callan McAuliffe, Ivy Latimer, John Batchelor and Steve LeMarquand.
