Presented by PLAYLAB IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BRISBANE POWERHOUSE
Cole and Sky, a young couple, are driving in a classic car from the coast to the gaping open-cut mines of Cole’s father’s empire. His father is on his deathbed and there are rumours Cole is set to inherit the earth after a life of aimlessness.
They set out with unbridled enthusiasm for the road ahead; swept up in romantic dreaming and poetic ruminations amid the boundless plains. They knit new narratives for themselves; give themselves new names and identities in sync with their seemingly unanimous versions of utopia.
Their newfound freedom is underscored by a long-forgotten mix tape buried deep in the glovebox, but out of the static following the final song, a pubescent voice cracks — a younger, angrier, more violent Cole and his teenage manifesto recorded to tape before a planned act of terror.
