IT’S CRUNCH TIME FOR Lola AND Chelsea AND AS THEIR ENEMIES ZERO IN THE WOMEN DRAW ON EACH OTHER’S STRENGTH FOR THE FINAL STRIKE
It’s crunch time for Lola and Chelsea and as their enemies zero in they must draw on their strengths.
Life on the run has been tough for Lola and Chelsea but at least they’ve been together. If either were battling corrupt cops and criminals alone neither would still be alive.
Now the women are preparing to turn the tables on their pursuers who have
tracked them to New Zealand. It will take everything they have to end this chaotic period of their lives and with enemies everywhere the only people they can trust are each other.
There are so many people after Lola (Rebecca Gibney) and Chelsea (Geraldine Hakewill) right now so the stakes are high. Morrison (Anthony Phelan) has been hunting them down in his desperate search to get back the gun he used 30 years ago in a horrific crime. It is evidence he’s been eager to get rid of for decades and the women have been getting in the way.
Also keen to get rid of the women are the men Lola’s son David (Charles Cottier) owes money to. He’s been in and out of Bangkok when not working on boats and racking up a huge gambling debt in the process. Like Morrison, these men don’t hesitate to kill when they don’t get what they want and they won’t stop until the debt has been cleared.
Then there are the police. Along the way Chelsea and Lola have committed a number of crimes just to survive but the police are also interested in them for other matters.
Detective Josh Levine (Stephen Peacocke) is now in New Zealand after his failure to get Chelsea to help him with a police corruption investigation. He’s keen to get answers from her and still wondering why Chelsea is sticking by Lola’s side.
But as Josh teams up with the local police and the crime rate spikes, confusion mounts over just what the women are involved in and whether they are at fault. But the longer Lola and Chelsea are on the run the more suspicious they look.
So it’s up to Lola and Chelsea to sort out the mess themselves. They will risk everything to put an end to this madness and escape the people threatening their lives.
It’s a fight that is taking them deep into the heart of New Zealand’s wild landscape. They will be leaning on each other more than ever and realising just how fortunate they are to have each other amidst all their bad luck.
That’s because Lola and Chelsea are the epitome of an unlikely alliance. They may have shared the same bus ride to work every day but they couldn’t be more different. The only reason they are friends now is because they survived a carjacking together.
Lola is the tougher of the two and has been driving their survival mission from the start, thanks to her street-smarts. Chelsea provides the brains in the operation and is realising a strength she never knew existed through this experience.
But there is one thing the women share in common and that’s a difficult past. They both had tough childhoods that have come back to haunt them along the way, forcing them to confront the past while fighting for their future.
If they stick together and draw on their combined skills they might just be able to free themselves from Morrison’s grip and the police’s interest. But any hope they have of finishing this thing once and for all could be threatened by a betrayal they never saw coming.
