REALITY CHECK

When 18 year old Kirsty McInnes returns to her hometown of Bilby Creek with a reality TV show crew in tow, she thinks that fame and love are within her reach.  But her new lover Dylan, director of the show, pulls back from her, saying ‘It’s the show or him”. Figuring she only has one chance at fame, and the romance could have fizzled anyway, she chooses the show but she didn’t count on having to share the limelight with the ex-soapie star and local theatre group president Genevieve d’Vine or having to live with her!  The price of fame!  She also didn’t count on ‘the new guy in town’ cracking onto her on camera and various male randoms turning up in town after seeing her on the show. Because she no longer wants the fame, she just wants Dylan. She’s about to get one huge reality check.
