The series follows six teens as they arrive at Arcadia House in Sydney from around Australia to pursue their dreams. For some, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime, for others it’s a last chance. All are strangers and the last thing they expect to find is family.
The series, which also won the AACTA Award in January, received critical acclaim when it went to air on ABC3 in 2015. Writing in The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, Darren Devlyn wrote: "Ready For This resonates because it so deftly tackles issues around Aboriginal culture and the state of blackfella-whitefella relationships, but also because it’s imbued with a unique brand of self-deprecating humour.”
