Description "A light comedy about the friendship formed between two women from very different backgrounds. It is concerned with two alcoholics, both women, whose plight has landed them in a hospital ward where they are fighting their addiction with medical concern, mostly good-natured abuse - and the odd drop of secreted gin. They are from two very different cultures - one is Irish, the other Aboriginal - and the only bond they have is a shared experience of what drink can do."
