Episode menu


Two families are separated only by a fence ... The Smiths are poor, with head of the family Mick being unemployed. On the other side of the fence, well-to-do Bev Devi is trying hard to keep up appearances by throwing barbecues for her upper class friends, totally glossing over the fact that her marriage has long been in shambles.
