A poet falls in love with an art student who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle -- and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.

Meanwhile two street kids start a shopping spree when they find the missing money. Rose Byrne co-stars as a country girl with whom Ledger starts a romance on his trip.Written by

Acko's prized purple XA Falcon that Jimmy borrows is actually director Gregor Jordan's own car. Comedian Merrick Watts bought the car and owned it till 2011 when he sold it via auction. See more »
In the scene where Jimmy arrives at Sharon's apartment building, the light indicates early morning/late afternoon. This would not be possible between the scene before (a 10am meeting with Pando) and the scene after (a midday swim at Bondi Beach). See more »
If your going through some shit in your life chances are somebody else has gone through the same thing before ya. And they've written about it. Some poet or philosopher has been through the same type of crap, and they've written about it. And when you find that poem or piece of writing. You think bloody hell this bastard has just summed it all up. It's kinda comforting. Know what I mean?

Lets hope director Jordan has more tales up his sleeve to tell.
Jordan takes us into the seedy crime side of Sydney, Australia, following the desperate attempt of nineteen year old Jimmy, (Heath Ledger), who bundles a job for a local gangster and needs to make amend before they get to him. The gangsters, (led by Bryan Brown), are a menacing bunch with a humorous streak in them. That's what makes the film work, because we always view gangsters as a rough bunch out to screw you badly. But this mob tickle your funny bone as well. A clever structured script by Jordan has characters crossing paths and getting caught in the web plot.
