This darkly comic story of love and revenge, set in a barren Australian industrial town, explores the tempestuous relationships, and sexual adventures, of Lola (Lola Marceli) and her family. The day that Lola's husband Ricardo (Simon Palomares) walks out on her to live with Wendy (Helen Thomson) - his blonde Australian mistress - Lola is enraged. When he buys a new car and starts to enjoy the good life with the savings he took from the family home, she is pushed to the limit and plots to take back what is rightfully hers. When Ricardo falls foul of Wendy's high cholesterol diet, Lola plans to take back the brand new car - her only family fortune - by any means necessary. Meanwhile, her daughter Lucia (Alice Ansara) hatches an alternate plan, and their strategies collide with disastrous but comical results.
