Tom returns home after a long work trip to realise that his children, George, and Julie, have grown distant from him and their mother, Patricia. Tom and Patricia share their frustrations about their children and Patricia confides in Julie’s cell group leader to learn more about her daughter’s behaviour. George appears indifferent to all that is going on but shows concern for his sister’s well-being. Conversations and confrontations reveal secrets and exposes issues with the family that may be worse than it seems.
