Liv (Jessica Henwick) and Hanna (Julia Garner) claim to be Canadians while backpacking in Australia because "everyone loves Canadians." When they run out of cash, they take on temporary live-in jobs at the Royal Hotel, the only pub for miles around in a desolate, dusty area, run by the owner, Billy (Hugo Weaving).

Although Liv doesn't see danger in their new situation, Hanna is well aware of how alcohol can change people and tries to protect her friend from the drunken advances of the customers and the sudden outbursts of violence.
