Alice is in her 20s, a graduate with a shitty job. She`s saving to head overseas, but family problems are holding her back. While she`s waiting to leave, Alice acts as our guide as we travel into the lives of her flatmates, her boyfriend`s band, her family, and a few complete strangers who have nothing to do with anything (probably). Julian sells his soul to the devil`s cousin. Zoe is attempting to overthrow corporate capitalism through counter-propaganda, while Greg is building a bomb. Josie`s just been sacked. Petulia, a 14-year old goth, has befriended Julian`s disembodied shadow... kind of. Meanwhile the sky is cracking apart, whales walk the earth, and a colossal tidal wave threatens to destroy the planet. People are dating and drinking coffee. Some are looking for better jobs, others are skating and smoking pot. And a bumble bee`s life hangs in the balance.
