Ryan, Dave and Andrew are three disaffected teenagers from a middle class suburb
of western Sydney. They find themselves surrounded by a society that expects

The band’s success overseas tests their friendships and also their characters, as each of them deals differently with stardom, addictions, depression and the reality that fame and fortune isn’t forever.
