An emotionally piercing coming-of-age family drama following a mother and daughters move to a new town.
Close-knit mother Lyn and daughter Iona are excited for their new life in a new town. Determined to make a success of things after a tricky start, Iona becomes best friends with three local girls. Used to being Ionas bestie herself, Lyn feels left out. In retaliation, Lyn also makes friends with Belinda, her neighbour.
As much as Lyn and Iona pretend to each other that things are going great, they are both struggling more than they will admit. Iona struggles with the girls, who act more like frenemies than friends, and Belinda wont give Lyn her stepladders back.
As they struggle with their new surroundings, they retreat into a world of fantasy and lies.
