It's nineteen eighty-three and in Melbourne the worlds of Avondale Heights and Coburg are about to collide. Giuseppe Allevoni, from good Italian stock, has fallen in love with Kaliopi Papadolpoulos, a good Greek girl. When Pepe and Poppy announce to their families that they intend to get married, they set a culture clash in motion that, while at times comical, threatens to tear the lovers apart.
Set against the backdrop of eighties fashion in a world of discos, home-grown tomatoes and pissing angel fountains, Pepe and Poppy is a charming romantic comedy about love and acceptance and discovering the universal similarities between us all.
