Movie Info

The Darcy family continues their struggle to build a new and better life despite the forces lined up against them in this sequel to the popular made-for-TV film Harp in the South. It's the early '50s and the Darcys have managed to find a little home for themselves in Sydney. Father Hughie (Martyn Sanderson); his wife, Mumma (Anne Plelan); and their younger daughter, Dolour (Kaarin Fairfax), live in the downstairs half of the house, while older daughter Rosie (Anna Hruby) stays in the upstairs apartment with her husband, Charlie (Shane Feeney-Connor), and their own little girl, Moira. Charlie's drinking problem has made Rosie's difficult life all the more troubling, and life remains an uphill climb in the Irish-emigre community of Surry Hills, but as bad luck, illness, and romantic discord make their presence known, the Darcys find that what they need most to survive is one another. Part of Poor Man's Orange was filmed during the shooting of Harp in the South, in order to reduce the budget of the show's potential sequel.
