Tara (Mia McKenna-Bruce), Em (Enva Lewis) and Skye (Lara Peake) all 16-year-old, from London and ready for a good time as they land in Crete on a post-GCSE summer blowout. With good vibes set to 11, the trio plan to spend their time getting plastered, making one another laugh, bouncing from hotel room to pool to bar to club to beach to club, and sometimes, to bed. When they join forces with a group of slightly older party-harders from Bradford they have “the best holiday ever!” At least, that’s what they keep telling one another.
