Ben drifts into Geraldton, broke, lost, and trying to escape a past that haunts him.
At the Outback Bar, he meets Kelly, a topless barmaid. She’s nothing like he expects. She reads Salinger, Murakami, and carried around a copy of Girl, Interrupted for a year.
Ben is entranced. She’s strong, determined, and encourages his dreams to write. With her, he feels he can reconcile his past. He feels he can become somebody more than he is.
But Kelly has her own secrets – secrets that Ben tries to navigate. Ben feels the past tearing at him, and the possibilities of the future daunting.
Drifting is a gritty, cult-classic in the making, a story of love, truth, and the power of dreams.
