Summary
A rock chick. An artist with attitude. A girl with a past. A party animal. Four lives collide when one of the world's most famous paintings is stolen. It's a mystery that has the nation talking, but while Picasso's Weeping Woman might be absent from the walls of the National Gallery, in other parts of Melbourne the controversial painting's presence is being felt by Guy, Rafi, Luke and Penny for four very different reasons. Life, love, art and one giant party intersect in this offbeat comedy about good intentions, unexpected consequences and the irresistible force of true love
Summary
As the Guy, a feckless high-school senior, plans the party of the year, the Girl worries about her mother, who is still grieving over the death of her brother. The Artist has discovered that forgery is a lucrative business, and gets involved in a scheme to steal one of the most famous paintings in the world. And his Ex, mother of his baby, is just trying to make ends meet.
