17-year-old Ellie (Sophie Hawkshaw, Love Child) is struggling to find the courage to ask her classmate, Abbie (Zoe Terakes, Janet King), to the formal. Luckily her Aunt Tara (Julia Billington, All About e), a lesbian who died in the 80's has shown up as a “Fairy Godmother” to dish out advice, whether Ellie wants it or not.
