All Because Of You

Infused with gentle optimism, these fifteen uncompromising stories explore themes of sacrifice and hope in domestic relationships.

Mum and Nan struggle to contrive a sense of normal family life in the emotionally charged environment of a women's shelter. A visual artist faces the return of her wayward daughter, who brings home her new boyfriend, the lumbering behemoth, Zol. A bereaved woman lies restless and alone in bed, her thoughts troubled by the cries of the dog locked in next door's laundry.

At once dark, poignant and witty, All Because of You depicts intimately and honestly the travails and heroic responses of women and men confronting the pith of their lives.
