The 'picture perfect' women of seemingly starkly different generations are forced together in a purely professional context - a government adviser mid-election, and a young psychologist. A year in the life of two women is told through the government employer's recommended five mental health consultations.
Trish appears the corporate woman - an advisor during an election, she's got kids, a husband, and a pay check. She's the expected image of that era of Australian women, but when her son is accused and investigated her life is thrown into a tailspin. Goldie is the psychologist she's chosen - a young woman with a lifetime's experience.
This project is amplified by a City of Moreland Microgrant.
