Single Australian mom Nora (Noni Hazlehurst) juggles her artistic aspirations, motherhood and an increasingly one-sided love affair with a troubled man. As she puts up with a low-paying job in the music business and tries to support her child, Gracie (Alice Garner), unsuccessful actor Javo (Colin Friels) makes his way into Nora's circle of bohemian friends. They begin a relationship, but Javo's burdensome drug problem puts a financial, familial and emotional strain on Nora.
