As the school year ends, 70,000 Year 12 kids around the country escape from school – many head for the Gold Coast, including Lynette (Veronica Sywak), Danny (Kristian Schmid), and Pete (Craig Horner) by bus; Jilian (Jess Gower), Bradley (Tony Brockman) by train; Yolanda (Petra Yared) and Amanda (Charlotte Rees) in a limo driven by Mason (Matthew Newton); Wayne (Travis Cotton) and Calvin (Mark Priestly) in a beat up Holden. Freda (Nathalie Roy) is already there, waiting for Yolanda and Amanda to turn up. Zack (Jamie Croft) is also there – somehow. All they want to do is to go wild and have a party on the Coast, before facing the unknown future of adulthood. But the getting there is just as much fun. And quite a drama.
