    An ordinary Aussie, a big bank, an outrageous true story....

    Luke ‘Milky’ Moore is a fun-loving Australian country boy who transforms into a high-rolling playboy, a prison inmate, and a successful criminal lawyer – all because of a bank error.

    Milky’s story starts in a dark place. After the 2008 stock market crash, Milky loses his job, life savings, suffers serious injury in a massive car accident, and struggles to make his house payments. And of course, his girlfriend leaves him. But at this lowest point, his bank accidentally throws him a lifeline. It starts automatically making house payments without deducting money from his account and if he withdraws money it isn’t detected. Milky thinks fate has given him a second chance. He moves to the Miami of Australia: the Gold Coast and the money just keeps on coming. Two million dollars later he’s the king of the party scene where every night it’s strippers, fast cars, drugs, and new friends. But how long can the party last before the law catches up to him?

    Narrated by comedian Jim Jefferies, hear this great Australian ripping yarn directly from the people who lived it. This unique comedy documentary will have you on the edge of your seat, laughing, crying, appalled, and entertained, but dying to hear how much deeper s##t Milky can get himself into.

Feel good story!

If this was presented by anyone other than Jim Jefferies, you'd almost think Milky was a criminal!

Feels like a sequel to the Castle

Amusing and enjoyable story. Milky really has lead a life of extremes to date and what a triumph for the underdog. Sounds like he might have more than 9 lives too.

Read the contact.

top yarn and true. Understanding the t+c of a contract, exploiting a loop hole is no crime. Maybe Milky should take a look at his father's unfair dismissal.

Absolute Gold!

This is a tale every Aussie should hear. What a bloody classic! It would make a fabulous movie, likened to The Castle. Enjoyed every episode of this remarkable yarn presented in true larrikin style. Just gold!

Fck me this is hilarious!

What a ride! Jim delivers an exceptional performance (in usual fashion) and has found a bogan just as smart and quick witted as he is. I hope Jim and Milky collaborate in the future, as the chemistry is fcking diabolical. Good on ya Milky!
