After his wife leaves him and his son stops speaking to him, retired Adelaide engineer Frank whiles away his time sorting out tools in his shed. In a desperate attempt to get him connected with society his daughter, Tracey, buys him a computer and an internet connection. Via random emails he encounters would-be Nollywood filmmaker, Ishaku, whose indefatigable optimism draws him into a world of comforting delusions. After his spur of the moment decision to invest in Ishaku's next movie, Frank takes the desperate measure of flying to Lagos to get his money back.
Based on a true story, Frank Forbes and the Yahoo Boy is a play by Adelaide writer and filmmaker Matt Hawkins.
It features Stephen Tongun, Kimberley Fox and Brendan Cooney.
