cops, counsellors, the family court? I mean fuck.”

One Woman. Four Men. She could be with any one of them; at twenty-two on a date on the Gold Coast, at thirty-one moving into an apartment in Albert Park, or at forty, happily married with a nine-year-old son living in Campsie. Four very different worlds share an identical space, our homes.
