When we meet the Gourley family they are dealing with many situations that all of us will recognise: parenting, teenagers, school, work hopes, dreams, relationships and plans for the future.

Then life throws a grenade spiralling them into a situation no one expected.

A profound piece with musical interludes & humour.
