Gettin' Square is a high energy and often hilarious observation of a crook keen to start over and work his way along the straight and narrow. Fresh out of prison Barry 'Wattsy' Wirth was a model prisoner and is determined to make a fresh start, far from crime. Wirth is reluctantly lured back into the fold by old mate Johnny 'Spit' Spiteri and gangster-cum-restaurateur Dabba in order to settle a few old scores and make headway on a few new ones. He proves himself as a cook. But both his old crime partners and the dirty cop who caused him being jailed as a scape-goat and harassed him in prison push and prod for Wattsy to put his criminal talent to profitable use again for them. Once they have enlist his gullible adolescent brother Joey and dumb mate Johnny Francis 'Spit' Spitieri, Barry accepts. But this time he has his own agenda, and it's full of smashing surprises. It's only a matter of time before Barry's kid brother gets in on the act and falls in with powerful gangster Chicka Martin priming a powder-keg which is ready to go off.
