AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Martin is an estimator for a removal company, professionally trained to help people with the stressful process of moving house. But no amount of training can prepare him for his latest job - Yonni and her granddaughter Sharday share a clutter-filled home in the suburban outskirts, surrounded by mementos of their past, until Yonni's daughter Karen decides it's time for a change. As Martin desperately tries to assist with their move, comic misunderstandings pile up and connections are revealed that turn his life upside down.' Source: www.ourbrisbane.com (Sighted 04/06/2007).
