synopsis

A day in the life of brutality… Brett Sprague returns to his family home after twelve months in jail. Things have changed while he has been away – his brother Glenn has moved out with his girlfriend Jackie, younger brother Stevie’s pregnant girlfriend Nola now lives with the family, and his mother Sandra has taken on a Maori drifter. Re-united with his brothers, Brett uses his first day back to restore order.
