Wednesday 16 August, 20:15: This screening will include an introduction by Rui Jin (she/they) -Reclaim the Frame Impact Producer for the South East. Rui is a film curator, marketer, and community organiser working with intersectionally marginalised communities.

The hilarious and unapologetically explicit story of identity and self-discovery centres on four unlikely friends who embark on a once-in-a-lifetime international adventure.

When Audrey's business trip to Asia goes sideways, she enlists the aid of Lolo, her irreverent, childhood best friend who also happens to be a hot mess; Kat, her college friend turned Chinese soap star; and Deadeye, Lolo's eccentric cousin.

Their no-holds-barred, epic experience becomes a journey of bonding, friendship, belonging, and wild debauchery that reveals the universal truth of what it means to know and love who you are.
