With sun shining, a punt glides over Merimbula Lake, on NSW’s south coast, with a passionate young oyster farmer, Dom at the helm. It’s a romantic picture of tranquil beauty and a life close to nature. But Dom and fellow locals swear the water’s getting warmer and the storms more severe. 

Oyster follows Dom and his wife Pip at home, in the work shed and, on the water. An intimate glimpse at life raising two energetic boys whilst working all hours to keep millions of Sydney rock oysters alive for the three years that it takes them to fully mature. 

Highly vulnerable to pollution, disease and changes in the waters temperature and salinity, it can be an uphill battle at times, particularly with environmental changes looming, and a fickle luxury market to compete in. But this charming Aussie portrait muses on the beauty of getting to work hard, and the delights of having your family close by, through thick and thin.
