This is the story of how one small break-in saved a family.
Robert lives with his parents. They've been dead for years, but he's still there and nothing in the house has changed. His sister, Lisa, would like to find him a girlfriend. His best mate, Lorrie, just wants him to get laid.
Then The Girl appears. On the couch. Asleep.
When a man who never talks back shares his space with a woman who never talks, who takes care of whom? Is a beautiful woman who cooks, cleans, sleeps, and asks nothing more, really the perfect partner? How long will it be before somebody is forced to speak up?
This absurd new Australian comedy explores the way we navigate grief, family, relationships and love – usually while saying the exact opposite of what we mean. Are we more honest in our words or our actions? How can one stranger's presence bring a family back to life?
