Standing on the outside looking in, the Prices seem like your typical tightknit, working class suburban family. Fran and Bob have worked hard to raise four loving, noisy, healthy kids; taking the stresses, strains and growing paints in their stride.

Now the kids have flown the coop, they’ve left an enormous void. The house is quiet again. It should be time to slow down, catch their breath and smell the roses Bob so lovingly cares for.

But as stories of their brood’s secret struggles unravel, the Prices find themselves in a fight to hold their fraying family together as the winds of change howl.

Celebrated WA writer Andrew Bovell (When the Rain Stops Falling, Lantana), exposes a tumultuous year in the life of an Australian family that digs deep into the heart of household dynamics and how we react to change.
