Long Weekend

Synopsis: Peter and Carla have a wasted marriage and constant friction. Peter buys expensive camping gear and, despite the protests of Carla, insists they travel with their dog Cricket to camp on the isolated Moondah Beach in the North Coast with his friend Luke and his girlfriend during the rainy holiday. Peter stops in a pub at the Eggleston Hotel and leaves a message for Luke with the owner of the pub. When Peter takes what he believes to be shortcut to the beach, he gets lost and the couple spends the night sleeping in their SUV. The next morning, Peter organizes the campsite and their intrusion into and abuse of the natural environment begins. During the two days, the couple's relationship deteriorates while the nature avenges the bad treatment the couple has inflicted upon it.

How are you?

All right, boy?

No, you can not come.

The boss says you're a nuisance.

Not this time.

How are you?

I want to leave early.

It is busy on the road tonight.

You were going to Mrs.. Dunlane ask for Cricket

for sure.

Peter, I do not like it,

to an old woman asking...

To your dog fit.

- Carla, it was just a question.

Forget it.

- They will really not starve.

There are three cans of dog food...

You do not put dog

ready and then think...

A dog that understands ..

Yes, it's a wonder that the breed...

Already survived one million years.

- Well, you're right.

And I'm a jerk.


Let us not on the wrong foot

start. Good?

We go to Moondah Beach.

Fresh air, sunshine.

Relaxing with Luke and Skybird.


Do I share a tent with a woman who called Skybird?


You share a tent with me.

Come on, relax.

I continue packing.

Can you hurry up a bit?

I have Luke told him that we are in

roadhouse in Packenham meet.


I was listening.

Bad reception.

I will turn on some music.


Let a little.

I had already seen them.

Have you Mark and Carol talked?

Did you tell them that we could not come?

Do you think this week they without us?

So they're still going to Portsea?

Yes, indeed.

Have we still fight?

- Well...

Honey, I'm not looking for a fight.

I think we have a few days

nice to each other should be.

We all four.

Enjoyed the beach and relax.


It sounds like I'm a disease recovery.

I meant myself.

I also need variety.

A little surfing with Luke...

While I Ladybird are stuck?

- No, Skybird.

Damn you, Carla.

You do not like camping,

but we have sat stuff with us.

I hope so. We have

$ 10,000 to camping equipment with us.

For the money we had in a

VIP suite in Thailand can sit.

Yes, you know all rooms off, huh?


Well, there is little chance of this wekend.

How long will it be then?

We are available until midnight...

And it takes an hour to the tent.

Wait, the reception is poor.

Yes, that's better.

The Eggleston Pub?

Yes, that's fine.

Luke is in the file.

We should go forward.

He said...

That we meet each other in the pub for the exit.


Luke, Peter.

I just leave a message for you behind.

I'm at the pub and I stay here

20 minutes.


Hey, guys, how are you?

Can I have a few bottles of your best rum.


A little quiet for a long weekend, right?

- Yes, we are far from the highway.

Here only got lost and people from the neighborhood.

Heading to Moondah Beach.

Ever heard of it?

It seems the best surf spot on the north coast to


70 Dollar.

Is there a

exit at about eight kilometers from here?

I hear for the first time.

Then we need not worry

to the pressure will be.

I have agreed with my size.

He drives a green bus,

but I can not reach him.

The reception is poor.

He sits within one half hour behind us.

If he comes,

want him to say...

That we have on the way to Moondah?

To the beach that does not exist?

Yes, but it's a secret surf spot.

Perhaps it is known under a different name.

It should be.


Where are we?

We're almost there,

a little further.

And Luke and "How-hot-it '?

- I...

A message in the pub before they left.


Useless motherf***er.


What is it?

- Nothing.

Is this the right place?

- Yes. That must hurry though.

Do you really know where we are?

Just about.

The ocean lies behind.

We just need to find a way.

That looks promising.

We're almost there.

You can smell the sea air.

How should Luke and How-hot-she find her way?
