A Melbourne Story
The Doorman is an unapologetically Melbourne film set in a period of the city’s transition, amongst the backdrop of the city's prominent night culture. Infused with social and political themes, the film aims to explore the incessant need for acceptance within a culture obsessed with face value.

Jack finds himself not only in the crosshairs of a federal investigation but gets caught up in an erupting underworld of bikies infiltrating the clubs and an oppressive oligarchy led by a man of immeasurable influence on a global scale. After years of manning the doors, Jack is now forced to make a decision - is he in or out?
