After Ronda's father passes away and her mother becomes too ill to care for her alone, they go to live with Ronda's grandparents and Reece, Ronda's aunt, four years older than Ronda and with Down syndrome. Ronda hates Reece and often bullies her. The grandparents also prefer to leave caring for Reece to Ronda's mother.
Some weekends, Ronda also goes to visit the elderly aunties and uncles at Adelaide Hills, each with their own peculiarities. As time passes, they each pass away, but Reece remains.
