The film begins with middle-aged has-been DJ Ken Sherry (George Shevtsov) driving to Sunray while he listens to (and mouths) the seductive songs of Barry White. Sherry’s career has definitely taken a turn for the worst. He used to work in Brisbane and apparently had a short stint on television, but now on his third divorce, Sherry is taking over Sunray’s one room shack of a dilapidated radio station. Both Sherry and his car have seen better days, but his name is big enough to excite hairdresser Vicki-Ann (Rebecca Firth) when she notices a strange car with Sherry’s custom plates sitting in the driveway next door. Vicki-Ann, who lives with her bizarre sister, Dimity (Miranda Otto) wastes no time spinning fantasies about Sherry. While she warns Dimity off Sherry saying that celebrities need their privacy, she tries to strike up a relationship with Sherry almost immediately by ferrying over various home-made dishes. Sherry, however, greets Vicki-Ann’s enthusiastic welcome into the neighbourhood with cold disdain. Sherry begins visiting the town’s drab Chinese restaurant owned by Albert (John Alansu) a quirky character who’s ”embraced nudism.” It so happens that Dimity works here as a waitress, and while she tells Sherry that Vicki-Ann is “looking for a boyfriend,” Sherry starts paying attention to Dimity.
