Tommy Matisse is a gifted musician studying at London's Royal Academy of Music, where he is striving to write a brilliant new operatic song called "One Perfect Day" in conjunction with his girlfriend Alysse back in Australia. When Tommy's sister Emma dies of a drug overdose after a night of clubbing with Alysse, he returns to Melbourne and breaks up with Alysse when she admits her part in Emma's death. As Alysse seeks solace in drugs and in the arms of a manipulative nightclub owner, Tommy undertakes an odyssey of self-discovery and tragedy in Melbourne's dance music scene.

One perfect day is one of the most amazing films i have ever seen. It made me laugh and cry and inspired me to try so many things.
it sends an obvious message about drugs which everyone can understand after seeing this film. it also has a message about music. it shows that no matter what kind of music you're into or what experience you've had, jut giving composing a go can make so many people happy. one perfect day shows music as an alternative to drugs because of the natural high it gives. you don't need to like dance music to enjoy one perfect day. its very sad and very beautiful. i love it!
