Four generations of the Haldanes are gathering for a family celebration. It ought to be the perfect reunion, but behind the doors of Fortune House, their beloved family home, life is not as idyllic as it seems.
Caroline and David?s marriage, scarred by a tragic loss many years before, is back in the spotlight as David?s retirement is thrust upon them. Meanwhile, their three daughters, Fiona, Deborah and Vonnie, have brought with them not just husbands and children, but crises and conflicts of their own.
As the holiday unfolds, it starts to become clear that the ties that bind the Haldanes together are in danger of unravelling entirely.
A moving and compelling portrayal of a modern family with all the warmth, pain, humour, anger and love that come with being related.
