A funny real-time drama set around a kitchen table at the weekly meetings of a 21st century family who are not even managing to 'just about manage'.

Amelia is 14. She's been through a divorce before. She really doesn't want to go through it again. But her blended family is threatening to unblend. So she draws on her experience as assistant chairperson of the Key Stage 3 debating society and initiates weekly family meetings for truth, reconciliation, grievance airing and the seeking of practical solutions. But can ultra-unionist Amelia overcome the separatist factions in her own family? Attendance is mandatory. Resistance is useless.
