The play that launched Michael Gow’s playwriting career.

In blazing heat, a stolen Mini hurtles towards Sydney. Inside, three unstable teenagers from the country – Snake, Aspro and Dean – plan a future that will begin when they collect Aspro's accident compo from the Department.

Joined by Donald, an opera fanatic desperate for a change of scene, they travel to the city to take up residence in ‘the largest block of flats in the Southern Hemisphere'.

As bush fires rage on the edge of the city, they meet Desiree, a young girl from downstairs with apocalyptic predictions.

Sparks fly. Tensions escalate. Twilight approaches…
