Around the Block is the story of American Dino Chalmers (Ricci) – an edgy and charismatic drama teacher with a passion for Shakespeare. When the opportunity arises for her to work at a school in inner Sydney, she embraces the chance to introduce the magical world of theatre as an alternative to life on the tough streets of Redfern in Sydney, Australia. The film centers on the developing relationship between Chalmers and Liam (Page-Lochard), a sixteen-year-old urban Aboriginal student who lives around the block in Redfern and earns the lead in her production of Hamlet. As Chalmers presents Liam with a possibility of a life without drugs and violence, he must choose between pursuing his newfound dream of performing or following his family into a cycle of crime.
