Vulnerable passions break the surface as Laura, who is thirty and alone, sees disturbing comparisons between herself and her neighbour. Iris is a depressing reminder of what she could become - a lonely old woman at the conclusion of a life, with a fax machine as a substitute for a family.
In middle class Auckland vulnerable passions break the surface as Laura agressively pursues love and acceptance, finding something very like it right next door.
A plain tale about the swollen secretions of suburban love.
This one-hour drama was director Niki Caro's (Whale Rider) last short before moving into feature film production. It screened as part of Montana Theatre on TV One in 1995.
