'Lally Katz is a true original...' The Age
Following the bizarre death of their parents, Abalone and Gerture retreat to the family home, cutting themselves off from the outside world.
They have a claustrophobic relationship where the line between fantasy and reality has become disturbingly blurred. Their insular world begins to fracture when Gerture starts to dream of a life beyond the confines of their home. But Abalone has other ideas.
