‘Your family have a really woggy vibe – you know, your dad working in the repair shop, your mum at the cafe… which I totally love… and mine are more… Italian.’

It’s la dolce vita for for Joe right now. He’s got a successful business, handsome boyfriend and wealthy AF future in-laws. He’s clawed his way out of the working class and he’s got freshly steamed linen trousers to prove it.

But his plans for full-blown assimilation take a nasty turn when Joe’s estranged cousin drops by and exposes an enormous family secret. Suddenly, Joe’s on a mission out to South-Western Sydney, to the Italian-Australian heartland and the place where his family’s story began.
