The roiling emotions and rivalries of three teenagers are explored in this Australian drama, which pitches three dissimilar young people together in a high-tension situation. David (Kelly Dingwall) has persuaded his gal-pal Michelle (Rebecca Rigg) to join him as he breaks into a posh home to grab some cash. He claims that he's done this before, and there won't be any problems. Trouble appears in the form of another of David's friends, Billy (John Polson), a boy with a bad attitude from the "wrong side of the tracks." He has been tailing the duo, and joins them at the scene of the crime. He wants to trash the house, since it represents an example of "the good life" to which he will never have access. Over the course of the evening these three very different personalities will come to share their innermost secrets and be drawn together in a way they could never have anticipated.
