Storyline

Sarah Keaton has just passed away following a difficult bout of cancer. She is survived by among others her loving executive chef/restaurateur husband, Tom Keaton, and their eight year old son, Oscar Keaton. The end of the Keatons' marriage was difficult not only because of the cancer itself, but also because they had divergently different views on treatment, and because her early prognosis was positive leading to both not treating the news of her imminent death well. Tom copes recklessly, irresponsibly and angrily in his grief, manifested by among other things indiscriminate casual sex with a multitude of partners. Also negatively affected by Tom's actions is Sarah's sister, Karen, who feels she needs to be the responsible one, especially as Oscar is often a casualty of Tom's irresponsibility. Many of the Keatons' friends and colleagues try to be there for Tom in any way they can, including Miriam, a therapist who is more a friend of a friend. Tom may have to go through much pain ...

Brilliant!
13 March 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Could not stop watching this drama. Recommend as a must see to all!! Matthew Goode and Bojana Novakovic at their best. Incidental view of this non-linear narrative while flying back to Australia on Qantas. Fairly close to home for me personally, but showing the common emotion of grief up close and very intimately personal. I give this a higher score than Descendants, addressing similar issues. Hope this is available in other countries, and should be high on the recommended viewing list for friends (perhaps not families) of people dealing with terminal disease. It's not the typical suffering of a cancer victim that is portrayed here, it's the distress of the carer, a very busy chef, and his son. And of course Bojana is a jewel in the crown!
