After having lived with their aunt for two years, 15-year-old Joey and his younger brother move back in with their mother to their great delight. At first, everything goes well: the house is tidy, the fridge is filled, Daphne has a job and Joey finds his place in a dance group. But the family joy soon comes under pressure when Daphne falls back into her old patterns. Joey does everything to keep child services out. This is the true story, told and acted by the boy who experienced it himself.
