GRIFF THE INVISIBLE

Synopsis

By day Griff (Ryan Kwanten) is an everyday office worker, in an everyday town; he lives a secluded life, bullied by co-workers, his protective brother his only friend. By night Griff assumes his other identity roaming the dark streets protecting the innocent and the vulnerable from the dangers that lurk in the shadows – he is the hero, Griff The Invisible. Increasingly concerned by Griff’s eccentric behaviour, his brother attempts to draw him back into the ‘real world’. In doing so, he introduces Griff to Melody (Maeve Dermody) an equally eccentric and charming girl. Fascinated by Griff’s idiosyncrasies, which are equal only to her own, Melody begins to fall for Griff. As Griff is forced to face up to the realities of a mundane world, it is up to Melody to rescue Griff the Invisible for the sake of herself, Griff, and their love for each other.
