Scarlet asks Alex to be her wingman for the evening at Newtown’s inaugural lesbian book club, but Alex is somewhat sceptical of the potential for picking-up. Hoping to impress, Scarlet is hastily trying to finish the book on time, but as the hours tick down the task becomes that much more difficult. Meanwhile Alex is not impressed with Scarlet’s new ‘health-kick’ purchase or her ‘lingering-like-a-bad-smell’ ex-girlfriend. Will the book club be the key to Scarlet finding love? Scarlet certainly hopes so!
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?
