Three Dollars is the story of Eddie (David Wenham), an honest, compassionate man who finds himself with a wife, a child, and three dollars.

 

Eddie's world revolves around the three women in his life: his brilliant wife Tanya (Frances O'Connor), a passionate academic, their six year old daughter Abby (Joanna Hunt-Prokhovnik), who heightens the stakes on every decision Eddie makes, and his childhood sweetheart, the beautiful, privileged Amanda (Sarah Wynter), who re-appears in his life with mathematical certainty every nine and a half years.

 

At any other time the world would have smiled on Eddie. But times have changed and the world values other things.

 

Surviving with a blend of self-depreciating wit, spirited sensitivity and a big heart, Eddie's life is rich with the pleasures and pains of love, family, friendship and marriage.

 

But with only three dollars to his name Eddie will be faced with a choice that will change the direction of his life forever.
