Meet Shelby. Feet-up on the backseat, music blaring, she’s mouthy and she’s cocky. Girls like Shelby look like trouble, but there’s more to Shelby than meets the eye.

From the backseat of the bus, Shelby is trying to make sense of the world and the people in it. We hear Shelby’s stories and along the way meet a busload of colourful characters.  Amidst the bags of shopping and miserable commuters 'The Backseat' offers a unique insight into a young girl's view of the world. A world that has mistreated her so far.
