In a house situated in the suburbs of London, lives a family like any other, until the father passes away and his children must take over the care of the house and of their own lives, since the mother suffers a serious illness that forces her to remain locked up in her room. This sudden and unexpected lack of an authoritative figure, of the reference point that a father always is, brings this small community of adolescents to create a new way of life that turns them into strange beings who act in a most unusual way, outside of the norms that rule a patriarchal society like our own.
