AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Suffering from a serious illness, Helen is forced to hire a carer while her devoted partner takes a short overseas trip. Fiercely independent, she concedes to the deal by hiring the least likely candidate; a young, unqualified, homeless tradie called Lennie, with a dangerous past. As their different worlds collide, an extraordinary bond is formed across the cultural taboos of age and class and a tragic pact takes shape.'
