Sometimes You Just Have To Dress Up and Coming In Riding To The Rescue
When you’re a working woman in 1950, there is more to work than doing a great job. Unwanted advances, no matter how repulsive, are common. This is where Zoe Lambros, a young Arts College graduate, has found work at the prestigious Sydney Art Gallery as a junior art restorer. She has also attracted the unwanted and offensive attention of Sebastian Fletcher, one of Australia’s greatest artists. Zoe is not one to take a backward step, but she finds herself unable to fight back without losing the job she loves. No one is going to believe the young artist’s claims against an Australian icon.
Enter Zoe’s lover who has decided to take matters into her own hands and is eager to take on the role of Zoe’s defender. A masquerade ball offers Eva Haralambos, Zoe’s dark-haired, blue eyed, six-foot tall peaceful and gentle partner, the chance to metamorphosize into a tattooed, leather clad Greaser on her own intimidatory mission.
