'Scarlett never has her mind on the job, and why would she? Her job is dull while her interior life is exciting. Her brain teems with the characters, situations and dialogue from the movies she loves and consumes like popcorn. But while she is off in la-la land, she may just miss something magical and exciting happening in her own life.'

'Let the Sunshine' asks 'what happens when people of widely different political views are forced to co-exist.
'Toby, a maker of hard hitting documentaries, flees Sydney in shame when the press finds out he had inadvertently used a bogus witness in his latest film. He convinces his reluctant wife Ros to travel north with him to a haven in Queensland, fondly remembered from visits in his youth. Problem is it has now moved from a simple fishing village to a chic, upmarket, manicured playground of the wealthy and privileged. Ros meets an old school friend, Natasha, who is married to Ron, a hugely wealthy property developer.
'Ros and Natasha had little in common even at school and to say Toby and Ron are like chalk and cheese would be understating it. The connection between the two couples seems destined to be brief and acrimonious save for one thing. Power lawyer Emma, the daughter of Natasha, and drop out musician Rick, son of Ros, happen to meet. And then, in typical Williamson fashion, it's on for young and old.'
