Family Business

Family Business

Marky Brooker runs the family building business with his wife, Jessica.  Marky wants the perfect family.  He has bought a wonderful Victorian house for them to live in, and with the business going well and his parents, Arthur and Iris, moving in, it looks like the whole family is going to be together.

But unfortunately things haven’t quite gone according to plan.  His seventeen year old son, James has disappeared and doesn’t seem to be coming back; his eleven year old daughter, Lauren, is increasingly dressing and behaving like a boy; and his parents may be smiling, but are they really happy to spend their retirement tucked away on the top floor of Marky’s dream home?
