Nobbys Beach is a place that revolves around surf mats, baby oil, boxed wine and the new miracle of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Jeff who is 14 years old tries to find his feet in a world changing faster than his hormones, and deals with his crush on Melly. The beach town is suddenly hit by the spotlight after the body of a 200-ton whale is washed ashore, which they think is the biggest thing that has ever happened in their lives. Meanwhile, their eccentric parents are catching up with the sexual revolution that has also washed up on Australia's beaches. And just like the decaying whale, it's all about to go spectacularly wrong.
