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.
