Rose has two jobs and is in her fourth live-in relationship. She forgives her latest man his many glaring transgressions, keeps an ideal home, vacuums incessantly when stressed and apologises constantly for her own shortcomings. She sees herself as a perfectly normal woman. Until a total stranger comes along. With some very bad news. "... clever and intriguing comedy-drama... Jeffreys' script is clever, insightful and economical." Geoff Gibbs, The Western Australian, Nov 2001
