Synopsis

A comedy about arrested development.
Anna is stuck. Her greatest happiness was her relationship with her twin brother, but since his death, 18 months ago, she's on a downward spiral that includes returning to her rural home-town, abandoning any hope of a sex life, and making the shed at the bottom of her Mum and Nan’s garden into her home.
When her Mum serves her with an ultimatum and her schoolfriend comes to visit, Anna’s life of emotional isolation becomes impossible to maintain. Soon she is entangled with a troubled boy obsessed with Westerns, and the local estate agent whose awkward interpersonal skills continually undermine his attempts to seduce her.
A story about confronting the things we are most scared of – a story that explores the universal themes of being lost and finding yourself, making peace with who you are, and regaining self-confidence and dignity. It’s basically the same themes as 'Rocky' but with thumbs. And a cowboy. And no boxing.
