Genre: Documentary. Dir: Pete Gleeson. Country: Australia.
At a remote pub on a dusty highway in Australia, the arrival every three months of a new pair of foreign backpackers to work the bar is a keenly anticipated event.
Fresh off the plane, Finnish travellers Lina and Steph find themselves en route to a dot on the map to pour beers, replenish depleted travel funds, and live among the locals.
But the girls soon realise that they’ll need to do more than just serve drinks.
An eye-opening journey into outback Australia that exposes a part of our national psyche rarely seen on screen since the likes of Wake In Fright – and this isn’t fiction.
