When an opportunity to further develop her budding friendship with Jasmin leads to an opportunity to sing with a famous DJ, Ava (Majeda Beatty) must face the question of how far she is prepared to go to succeed in this new city.
But coming face-to-face with her overpowering fear of performing in public and the realisation that she has let herself be pressured into the whole situation because she is too shy to speak up for herself, makes Ava face some tough decisions.
When all the housemates sneak out to watch Ava sing, and are inevitably caught, Vee (Christine Anu) is furious. Her punishment fits their crime but the night out helps to bond them as a group.
READY FOR THIS is the 13-part story of six teenagers, all elite within their own field, who have come to live at Arcadia House to pursue their dreams. For some it’s the opportunity of a lifetime, for others it’s a last chance. All are strangers, some a long way from home, and the last thing they expect to find is family.
Cast: Majeda Beatty, Christine Anu,
