Lou, Avery and Rio’s lives are falling apart, but adultery and binge drinking are just the tip of the iceberg, in this Inner West Sydney-based drama.
When their mother (Tammy MacIntosh, Wentworth) goes away for the weekend, three struggling siblings are serendipitously reunited as they return to their childhood home, unaware of their similar intentions. Old tensions and secrets emerge when they discover Rio has been in contact with their estranged father. Forcing each other to confront their shared past – as only siblings can – new light (and new hope) is shed on their present.
