Jeremy the Dud is a comedy set in a world where everyone has a disability, and those that don’t are treated with the same prejudice, stigma and condescending attitudes people with disabilities face in our own society.

Jeremy (Nick Boshier – Soulmates, Bondi Hipsters, Trent from Punchy) is a dud, or “without specialty”. He has been living in assisted government housing his whole life after the death of his parents when he was young.

Now, too old for assisted living, he is off to live with his Auntie and cousins and ready to make something of himself. The only trouble is the outside world isn’t very accepting of “Duds”.

This film was made in partnership with genU, a leading disability support organisation in Australia.
