The Garrys are taken out into nature (the local common) by their survivalist mother Della to forage for free food and 'skill up'.

Eldest child Germaine, in the grip of adolescent hormones, comes up with a psychologically unhealthy way to get closer to the boy of her very delusional dreams, local yob Lee. Younger sister Yoko reaches a female milestone in the bushes, prompting emergency intervention from Della and threatening Germaine's love scheme.

Meanwhile Della's father, Grampy, prepares for some afternoon delight with his overbearing wife 'Shit Nan', inadvertently giving Aretha a deeply distressing insight into her grandfather's sex life.
