- Perth, Australia, 1974. Young marrieds, Ross and June, attend a Joan Baez concert. Absent from the Old Men’s Home, Baxter Moncur is in the audience. Despite their age difference, Ross and Baxter have much in common. Personal insecurities. Confronting love stories. Testing family dynamics. And an unceasing struggle to reconcile past circumstances with present realities.
- Enter Simone Passeri, a social worker undertaking a research project. Above and beyond the scope of her work, Simone embarks on a search. A self-confessed failure at Relationships 101, she casts off the conventional social worker image and takes us on an unconventional ride. In her own words: ‘Very seventies, actually.’
- Parallel or intersecting lives? Eternal estrangement or potential reunion? In the background, the music plays, and the new Labor government surges and splutters - an Australian Reformation with the Emperor at its helm.
