In the Australian vernacular, the word "dag" refers to the filth-covered hindquarters of a sheep; it is also used, with affection, to describe vulgar, unsophisticated people, usually of the working class. This low-brow comedy targets just such people and their colorful, scruffy lives. Cheryl, who thinks K-Mart is the most wonderful place on earth, is engaged to stoner Daryl until she decides that she deserves someone better. Kevin dreams of making the Guinness Book of World Records by convincing his buddy Trevor to rob his video store every night. One evening, Trevor ends up taking Cheryl hostage, leading Kevin to save her. Convinced she has at last found her perfect man, Cheryl falls instantly in love. Meanwhile Tina illicitly trysts with Enzo, her best friend's handsome boyfriend.
