Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Mistaken identity provides the basis for this Australian screwball transvestite comedy. The trouble begins in the rural town of Worondilla in the sugar cane district of northern Australia. The town is preparing for its annual Sugar Week celebrations. This year an all-girl band is being brought in. Three of the five members are lesbians. When the band leader Courtney learns that her guitarist, Jo, has had sex with a local lothario, who also bedded lead singer, Angie, Jo is out of a job, and the band is without a guitar. They begin advertising. At the same time, an angry wife, Irene, leaves her obnoxious husband and town barber, Barry, after he pawns her piano. Barry is crazy about Elvis and loves singing his songs at the local tavern with his sons. The sons are terribly upset that their mother has left them and do not know that she is secretly staying at the same hotel as the band. When her son Mick, an effeminate looking fellow, sees the band's ad, he dresses up as a female and applies for the job. He will spend the money he earned to get his mother's piano back. More trouble ensues when Angie,who thinks of herself as straight, falls in love with the new guitarist, "Michelle."
