SOMETIMES THE LAST THING YOU WANT IS THE THING YOU NEED MOST
Across the crowded terminal at Sydney Airport, disillusioned travel blogger Grant watches touring English musician Nina steal a bottle of vodka, and impulsively he steps in to help her avoid arrest.
When this chivalrous act makes Grant miss his flight, he’s forced to take a last minute job chaperoning his new least favorite person around the city he’s grown to hate, to cover the cost of a new flight, twenty four hours later.
As the straight-laced Grant chases the free-spirited Nina across town, he becomes increasingly uncertain if he’ll actually make it, as he’s drawn into the string of petty crimes she’s tallying up, en route to her gig that night.
Their initial animosity melts away as they bond over music, heartbreak and dad jokes, Grant sees Sydney through Nina’s eyes, and in the process, he gains a new appreciation for his home, and – by reconnecting with the past he was running from – a new hope for himself.
As their twenty four hours together draws to a close, neither star-crossed stranger will find it easy to say goodbye to the other.
A love story in the tradition of ‘Roman Holiday’, ‘High Fidelity’ and ‘Before Sunrise’.
