After discovering her new boss Harry has been turning away customers, garage mechanic Bea Nilsson is suspicious he's somehow trying to sabotage things so garage owner Lucas Fitzgerald will be convinced to sell the business.

Determined to play Harry at his own game and save the garage and her job, Bea decides to pull an all-nighter at the garage to boost business.

However, little does she know but ruthless estate agent Mel Lohan, who is circling to buy the garage on behalf of Paul Robinson and his Robinson Pines property development, has a plan to shut down the garage for good...

Taking matters into her own hands, Mel deliberately sets a fire at the garage, completely unaware Bea is taking a powernap in one of the vans! As the place starts to go up in flames, will Bea wake up before it's too late?
