A trilogy of scripts linked together by character, theme and plot. Mandy is a young Indigenous girl grappling with identity, employment and housing problems. Just when she seems to be sorting things out, a new problem emerges, and she is torn between family loyalty on the one hand, and responsibility to herself and her partner on the other. Her efforts to resolve this conflict lead to unforeseen consequences.

The play was requested and supported by members of the Peel Indigenous community. It contains humour and surrealistic spirit voices, as well as Indigenous dance. It was shortlisted for the 2005 AWGIE for Community and Youth Theatre
