The Wise’s are the quintessential modern family. They’re liberal, open-minded, self-employed and have all the creature comforts one could ever want. Like a lot of people in their position, they’re also up to their eyeballs in debt. The façade of ambition and success is about to come unstuck.
Robert and Brenda Wise, their 18-year-old twins Gretel and Olly, and their cat Shadow are stuck in self-isolation as a pandemic grips the planet. Quarantined in their own home after Robert came down with a mild fever, they have everything they need in their McMansion in Sydney’s south. But their work and lifestyle is about to take a devastating blow.
The mainstream media has perpetuated the crisis as ‘unprecedented’, and fear and uncertainty is gripping the land. The NSW Government is taking extreme measures to control the virus, and everything has come to a grinding halt. All trade and services have been suspended due to strict social distancing laws. The entire nation is confined to their own homes as the economy collapses.
With infection rates on the rise and the government racing against time to flatten the curve, this tight-knit family will be tested like never before, as they and everyone else navigate unknown territory.
Life as they know it is about to change in ways unimaginable.
