Ben and Liam are importers who accidentally receive a shipment of religious statues, unaware of what is hidden inside. Rich works at the docks and is tied up in too many deals. Sonia, his flatmate, is an usher at the cinema, cleaning up after people like Samantha, a final year medical student who spends more time at the movies than at her books. Samantha studies mechanics with Belinda, a cleaner who believes in self-improvement and dreams of becoming a pop star. She cleans houses with Peta, who smokes Cuban cigars and yearns for the revolution. Between talk of engines and ecstasy, between fantasies of New York and the Virgin Mary, fifteen lives intersect as this multi-layered story explores life's infinite possibilities. (5 male, 10 female).
