Clubland is a 2007 drama film that follows the life of a single mother, Jean Baird, played by Brenda Blethyn, as she raises her two adult children, Tim and Jody, in the suburbs of Adelaide. Jean is a vivacious woman who has a passion for music and performing, but she had to put her dreams aside to raise her children. Tim, played by Khan Chittenden, is a young aspiring stand-up comic who is trying to make it in the entertainment industry, while Jody, played by Emma Booth, is a rebellious teen who is trying to find her own identity.

Jean is excited when she gets a job as a waitress in a local nightclub, Clubland, where she can finally pursue her love for music. Her boss, Steve, played by Richard Wilson, is smitten by her and offers her the chance to perform on stage. Jean's performances are a hit, and she becomes the club's resident singer. However, the job takes a toll on her relationship with her children, especially Jody, who feels neglected by her mother's new job and late-night performances.

Tim starts to question his career choice as a stand-up comic, and he becomes envious of his mother's success. He starts to feel left behind and ignored by his mother, who is focused on her own career. He is also dealing with his own personal issues, including his crush on one of the other comedians at the club, Jill, played by Frankie J. Holden.
