Two teenage girls, Paula and Lyndsay about to enter university, meet for ABC concert at the Sydney concert arena. In the crowded room, the young women relax and move to the rhythm of the music they grew up with. As they hide in the toilets to smoke a joint, Lindsay's eyes are attracted by a drawing and, a note scrawled in lipstick on one of the walls:

"When this monster enters my brain, I will never know. But it's here to stay. Catch me before I do more…" There's a picture of a terrified woman with blood pouring
from her face.
 Below Lindsay can read: "First kill".

Lindsay knocked out by the party and the joint she smoked earlier, falls asleep and Paula realizes the driver has taken the wrong road. He leads her to a vacant lot with a view overlooking Pittwater and its yachts, then he stabs Paula violently, as Lindsay is still fast asleep, but her fate won't be much more enviable than her friend's.
