Office secretary Nikki (Nikki Owen) is disillusioned with her fraught, sometime' relationship with her married boyfriend, Peter. Emotionally scarred by the dysfunctional relationship, she all but gives up on the possibility of finding anything more meaningful. But in the wake of a torturous and disturbing blind date, Nikki meets Tony (Tony Ryan), a "black fella on a white bus". Despite their obvious differences and Nikki's disillusionment, the charismatic Tony shows Nikki that there is indeed room for love and romance in the desperate world of Blacktown.In this low-budget verit -style film, Kriv Stenders has fashioned a very raw story in which emotional connection overcomes the constructed barriers of cultural and social difference. The performances of Owen and Ryan are powerful for their honesty and immediacy, giving their characters emotional complexity and startling authenticity.
