The Overthinkers

Four people, figuring out sex, love, and how to ‘adult.’ Sydney – one of those places that just consumes you. A private school boy, a tortured drug dealer, a starving artist and a gay outcast, try to do their best as they navigate through the unspoken rules which govern the fast paced, status obsessed harbour city.

Benji: desperate to stand on his own, and be perceived as separate to his overachieving family.

Francesca: plotting her remarkable and glamorous future.

Leo: the confident gay-sian, but despite the pretence, lacks a sense of identity and self-worth.

Hamish: fell into drugs to distinguish himself.

Four stories interlaced together. Anxiety masked as confidence. Ambitions as arrogance. Insecurities which fester … until the cracks appear in the perfect façade.

"I laughed. I cried. Sometimes at the same time!' Tim Ferguson.

"Portolan and Cheong's voices stitch seamlessly together to lay out a funny, honest and extremely relatable story, so clearly born of the 2020s. I couldn't get enough of it!" Marlee Silva
