Summary
Marie King is a 59-year-old divorcee from Sydney's affluent north shore. Having devoted her rather conventional life to looking after her husband and three children who have now all departed the family home she is experiencing something of an identity crisis, especially as she must now sell the family home and thus lose her beloved garden
Summary
Marie King is fifty-nine, recently divorced, and has lived a rather conventional life on Sydney's affluent north shore. Now her three children have moved out, the family home is to be sold, and with it will go her beloved garden. On a drunken whim, Marie gets a tattoo, an act that gives way to an unexpected friendship with her tattoo artist, Rhys. Before long, Rhys has introduced Marie to side of the city that clashes with her staid north-shore milieu. Her children are mortified by their mother's transformation, but have their own challenges to deal with: workplace politics; love affairs old and new; and, of course, the real-estate market
