Starts at Pighouse Flicks 17th of April
Enter Hal’s world of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs – Here, amidst the pristine beaches, parks and gullies of Bondi, Tama, Bronte, Clovelly, Coogee and Maroubra live the exceptionally rich yuppie newcomers, often nestled next door to the original “old school” low to middle class “tradie” community.
Follow our sleepy anti-hero Hal’s final days of year 12, where the normally studious and responsible elder sibling of a one parent family has been granted the chance to finally let his hair down.
Suddenly (and unexpectedly) Hal is also faced with the opportunity to chase his dreams by auditioning at the age of only 17 for the prestigious National Academy of Performing Arts.
Overwhelmed, Hal chooses (out of fear of failure) to ignore the moment afforded to him and opt for the option of partying all night.
Along with his hilarious slacker besties and larrikin footy mates (and the surprise appearances of his two younger brothers exploring their own particular stages of adolescence), a night of teenage chaos ensues.
By nights end, Hal has learnt not only who he is, what he might achieve (with a little help from his friends) but learns to own what he truly wants… and the courage required to chase his dream.
