A charmingly dysfunctional family. A closet full of skeletons.
Meet Kat. Just a regular teenager growing up on a Zimbabwean farm. Full of fun, but sensible – her brother and grandfather are far more suited to the role of family nutters. Then a tragic accident takes her – slowly, insidiously – from her idyllic world into a darker reality. Chronic pain leads her to a stormy love affair with pharmaceuticals and into a battle she seems unlikely to win. Playing fast and loose with their prescription pads, doctors help set the scene for Kat’s utter destruction. In treatment, a group of colourful characters do their best to draw her from the dark underbelly of life, back into a lighter world. In the background, skeletons continue to tumble from the family closet with Kat’s mother saving the best for last.
