It’s Pygmalion in Footscray. David is about to retire as a high school English Literature teacher but faces major problems. His retirement plans are ruined when his family and fortunes head south. He moves to a new world in Footscray.
Thanh is a young Vietnamese woman who recently arrived in Footscray. Her life to date has been amazing, she speaks no English, makes clothes for a pittance, and lives with her grandparents who speak only Vietnamese. Julia is David’s elderly widowed mother, in poor health, wealthy and selfish. These three characters star in a love story with a difference.
