1 Haus + 2 Familien = 100 Dramen In den letzten 15 Jahren haben Angela und ihr Bruder Richard nur einen Nachmittag miteinander verbracht. Denn sie leben in unterschiedlichen Welten: er als erfolgreicher Radiologe in Edinburgh, sie als Lehrerin, die nicht nur ihre drei Kinder, sondern auch noch ihren Mann, einen Luftikus, ernähren muss. Doch jetzt, nach dem Tod ihrer Mutter, mietet Richard für eine Woche ein altes, rotes Herrenhaus in Herefordshire und lädt seine Schwester und deren Familie ein. Richard selbst kommt mit seiner zweiten Ehefrau und seiner Stieftochter Melissa, einer hübschen, selbstbewussten, permanent auf Flirt gepolten 15-Jährigen, die Angelas ältestem Sohn den Kopf verdreht. Und nicht nur ihm, sondern zur Verwirrung aller auch noch Angelas Tochter, die gerade erst zu einer religiösen Schwärmerin mutiert war. Eine moderne Patchworkfamilie trifft auf eine Großfamilie traditionellen Stils, Generation Facebook steht den Rockopas gegenüber. Das Ergebnis: Allenthalben lauern Abgründe, schwelen komische und ernste Konflikte – bis ein lang zurückreichendes Trauma, das Angelas gesamtes Familienleben überschattet hat, endlich aufbricht.
