The stable, seemingly happy lives of the Hammond family and their three very different grown-up daughters Prudence (Amanda Redman), Louise (Alice Krige) and Maddy ('Kelly Hunter' ) are suddenly shattered when Gordon (Keith Barron) has a heart attack. Whilst recovering Gordon falls in love with his nurse April (Adjoa Andoh) and decides to leave Dorothy (Sheila Hancock), his wife of many years, and move in with her. Initially, the shock causes great consternation in the family but forces the exposure of many hidden secrets as Dorothy stays with each daughter in turn whilst trying to rebuild her life. Gradually, all the Hammond's, young and old, must come to terms with their new lives and circumstances, and face a future very different from anything they could have imagined. Written by

I started to see "close relations" because I had nothing else to do! and my oh my I´m happy that I did. I really like that we get so close to each person, especially Maddy and see her struggle for being loved for the person she is. I normally don`t think a lot about a movie afterwards , but this one kept on coming back to me; I was analyzing every aspect of words being said in the movie. I guess when seeing it I met something in Maddy that also was inside of myself. I think everybody will be able to recognize something within themselves when watching "close relations". I just love "close relations"
