The Newtown Girls S01E01

“I’m Home!”

Scarlet arrives home after spending a year in South East Asia mending a broken heart. Not only is she back, but she knows exactly what she wants. In fact she has a list, of all the things she needs to be happy, including finding her soul mate. When she shows up on her best friend Alex’s doorstep she isn’t exactly welcomed back with open arms. But this doesn’t deter Scarlet who drags Alex into helping her track down and tick off the items on her list. And it all goes to plan – at first. While finding a job isn’t that hard, finding your soul mate is a whole other story.

The Newtown Girls

Scarlet is a girl determined to find true love in the quirky queer scene of Newtown in Sydney, Australia. If she could only figure out what it is she really wants! Scarlet returns to the ‘scene’ after years of absence to confront the typically-lesbian obstacles of ex-girlfriends, fashion faux pas, romantic advances from authority figures and a complicated relationship with her long-time best friend, Alex. Will Scarlet find what she is looking for or will pretending to be someone she isn’t result in her losing everything?
