Alice's family is more than a bit weird. Her mother, Gina, is a young mother attempting to provide a stable and loving home for her and husband, Keith. When Gina’s obsession with the local TV weatherman incites her to climb on the roof—naked—she is whisked off to the local psychiatric hospital. With a non-responsive mother and a well-meaning but stoned father, Alice grows into an awkward teenager and develops an obsession with Morrissey and the Smiths. Havoc ensues when Alice hatches a plan to bring Gina back to ‘normal’ which divides the family forever leading to a funny and moving climax. Written by Jo Brand based on her novel of the same name.
