TIME: The Present
Gary and Ros, both recently divorced, and now married to each other have decided to move away from the city and take up a few acres of land in the South West of WA. At first all goes well. Their neighbours seem a little eccentric but there are no real problems. They enjoy the space and freedom and Gary finds out that he has a real talent for growing things. The situation changes when Gary’s sister, Bernice, arrives with a tale of woe about their mother. It gets decidedly more problematical when Gary starts digging in the old chook yard...
