It's September. Another group of 'soon to be' grown ups are preparing to graduate high school and descend upon Australia's party capital... the Gold Coast. Like many of the other party goers, Toni has a steady boyfriend (Troy) but has headed to schoolies a day early with her friends; long time-fun-girl Greta, who parties hard and asks questions later, and Pip, her best friend that would do anything for her…

When Greta learns of Troy’s plans to ask for Toni's hand in marriage, she forges a plan to force each of the girls to find a man for the week. But as the girls find themselves with Tye, Seb and Ron, at their ‘Seaview hotel’ later that night, each is faced to question what the term ‘getting lucky’ really means. Where themes of promiscuity versus frivolity, and sensation versus intimacy, are sent to battle in a haze of alcohol, each individual is called to challenge their belief of adhering to the ‘status quo’ and discovers what being an adult really means.

Now we’re in the garden- and she’s says something like - “I can’t believe you called me last month- woke up my family.” She hits my arm- note ladies we love that. Then she goes on about, “My Mum and Dad are probably splitting up because- blah blah blah- They never listen...

EXTRACT: It’s me… I don’t know why I’m still calling- my fingers just pushed your number. I’m a little green… Looking for a friendly voice I guess. You’re suppose to be here today. Is that a mistake? Is there a lightening bolt? A sign I should’a seen? (pause) You introduced yourself at a school dance- Grade seven. I still remember your ironed plaid shirt- black glasses from a cereal box. Even at twelve I knew they were tacky… But we danced… And danced… And now I see a picture of you...
