Synopsis

Fresh off the plane and in need of money, two Finnish backpackers find themselves the latest batch of “fresh meat”
sent to work as barmaids at the only pub in a remote Australian mining town.

Confronted with a culture of alienation and impunity – in limbo between being desired and disdained,
their working holiday rapidly deteriorates into a bizarre test of endurance, as they discover
that to meet expectations they’ll need to do more than just pour drinks.

Set deep in Australia’s harsh interior, Hotel Coolgardie is a sometimes amusing, sometimes appalling,
surprisingly moving portrait of small town insularity, fragile masculinity and
the plight of the outsider forced to adapt or face the consequences.
