A diverse group of seedy characters live their lives in the tawdry King Cross district of Sydney, Australia in this low-budget romantic drama. Mitch (Jo Kennedy) is a female hairdresser who loves Rex (Nique Needles), a petty crook and drifter who is jailed after he is convicted of attempted burglary. Robert Menzies plays a drugged-out character called Yawn. Gaye (Anna Phillips) is a hooker who lives with her lover and pimp Tony (John Polson). None of them tries too terribly hard to work at their "jobs," or their lives, and it seems certain that they will all do yet more time in prison -- sooner rather than later, nor will they mind it much.
