    • Synopsis
    • JB, Stacey and the other housemates of York Street were casually coasting through life - attending University classes, working part-time jobs, partying a little too much and subtly ripping off the system to pay the rent…but after kicking out the live-action
      role playing, mediaeval fridge killer who lived downstairs, they needed to find a replacement housemate and they needed someone fast.

      What they didn’t expect was Jordan, an amphetamine fuelled, nipple rubbing, Celine Dion listening, 'fraudulator' who is about to turn their unsuspecting lives upside down.

      Within a week of moving in, the house has become a swirling maelstrom of criminals, drug lords, undercover cops, hired goons, angry karate lesbians and worst of all, real estate developers.

      When Jordan suddenly vanishes with everyone’s rent money, the TV, three pink suitcases Elroy was holding for the Tasmanian babes next door and most of the housemate’s possessions, the magnitude of their real problems become apparent with the revelation that he was also running a stream of illegal scams from the house. The fallout is catastrophic.

      The housemates have one week to sober up, find Jordan, keep their house and save their arses, as well as one of Elroy’s most sensitive body parts.

      They have to use all their dodgy skills to pull themselves out of this one, but it’s not so easy when half the law enforcement community are already watching you.

      Just when it appears it might be all over for this house of misfits, JB happens across the answer to all their problems. All he needs now are his housemates combined skills and a lot of luck to pull it off.
