Ruby, a sweet creative elderly lady who lives alone has undiagnosed dementia. After she accidentally burns her house down, she is forced to shift into her daughter Sharon's crowded home, and share her granddaughter’s Tash, bedroom.

Tash goes from hating Ruby to loving her as she learns more about some family secrets and she becomes Ruby's fiercest advocate when Sharon thinks it’s time for a Nursing Home. Unable to access services required to keep Ruby safe Sharon is faced with the ultimate dilemma to go against Ruby’s wishes or do what she thinks is best for her mother.

Please note: Doors will open one hour prior to start time to allow patrons to enjoy the Margaret River HEART onsite cash bar and Kiosk
