- Synopsis / Plot
- Muriel is a young misfit adrift in a small Australian town called Porpoise Spit. She loves attending weddings just to witness two people starting new lives -- although it seems likely that Muriel herself will never have one. Finally, however, she gets fed up with being an onlooker and decides to take some action: she accepts a blank check from her mother that's supposed to start her off on a career selling makeup, and cashes it in for her parents' life savings. Flush with mad money, she goes on a tropical vacation and then hightails it to Sydney to avoid the shame of possible jail time. There, Muriel renews her acquaintance with the vivacious Rhonda, who introduces her to new possibilities and adventures. But Muriel still lacks one important thing: a husband. How far will she go to get one?
