Shantelle works at the local supermarket in her hometown of Young, NSW. Between stacking the cherry shelves and scrolling through women on Snapchat, there doesn't appear to be much going on in her life to keep her there. But when she discovers her wayward teenage sister, Tamara, posting nude pics online, Shantelle must hunt her down with the help of a callow workmate to stop Tamara crossing a dangerous line. Faced with the bigotry of her small country town as she attempts to balance the duality of her responsibility and her sexuality, Shantelle must choose who to protect - her sister, herself or a young gay man at risk.
