The job description says bartending but the customers at Hotel Coolgardie often demand more from the young girls who are hired to work there. Lina and Steph, two Finnish girls on a working holiday, sign up for the task. The property owner's nastiness and the sleazy comments from the bar's regulars are just some of the problems they have to deal with on a daily basis. Hotel Coolgardie brings alive the often uncomfortable and unfortunate realities of life in the Australian outback, a region which is a little out of touch with the times.
