Melbourne, 1994. 17-year old Ben and his friend Lolly sneak out to the legendary night club Tasty. Unfortunately, this also happens to be the night of a notorious real-life drugs raid, during which over 460 patrons were publicly stripped and cavity searched with dirty gloves and denied access to toilets, water and their rights. And Ben sees a familiar face among the cops.
