Storyline

Stressed-out housewife Cath Hanley, trying to give up smoking, is doing her best to bring up her three children whilst her husband is in prison awaiting trial on drugs charges. The final straw comes when her son Ian is arrested for the accidental death of a taxi driver. In fact Ian is innocent. He and his cousin Gary Parr, about to join the Navy, were out on the town when Gary was sick and the taxi driver got aggressive. Gary banged the man's head in the taxi door,killing him, but Ian is prepared to take the rap to allow his cousin to join the Navy. Cath is appalled and comes into conflict with her sister Jan, Gary's mother, who is defensive of her son and also jumpy because she has given up smoking. The two sisters fall out before the final resolution. Written by don @ minifie-1
