Geoffrey Palmer stars as George, the head of a dysfunctional family, in this radio sitcom. His bizarre treatment of his relatives has led to his wife using amateur art as a distraction from her problems, to his daughter Rose becoming a selfish and money grabbing woman and to his son Alex, played by writer Gerard Foster, developing an unhealthy obsession with snails. George's reaction to this is one of delight. It all serves to provide him with excellent source material for the book that he is writing.
