Meet Peter, an electricity meter reader for AusPower, training shy young newcomer Lachlan, as they navigate abusive home-owners, cattle dogs, live meter boxes and worst of all the dangers of Annie-the-Field-Manager.

Based on the real experiences of a broke young man trying to pay the rent in Sydney, this is a story of awkward friendship between lowly paid workers (ironically invisible in Hi-Vis gear) trying to fend for themselves in a dog-eat-dog workforce. And through it all, it’s about the books they read (when they’re not reading meters).
