‘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 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.
