Casey and Tib may not find meaning in life, but, by chance, they find each other. We meet the reluctant Casey (Josh Lavery) hitchhiking through rural Australia, stealing bottles of liquor from ignorant bar patrons and having sex in truck stop bathrooms. When he finally arrives in Sydney, where his cowboy hat and small-town demeanor make him stand out, he signs up for a Grindr-like app and finds himself in high demand. It is through one of these interactions that he meets attractive city boy Tib (Sudanese/Egyptian actor Daniel Gabriel), with whom he develops an immediate physical and emotional connection.
