Synopsis: The Gareth family live in a quiet suburb of London and are each happy with their daily life. When their father goes for a year to the Far East to track down a microbe their mother goes with him, leaving the children to be looked after their Great-Aunt Dymphana in her house in West Cork. A totally different life where the children are expected to be self-sufficient, from cleaning to washing, cooking and even finding the food, it doesn't start well. Throw in a run-away film star of their age, and a Great-Aunt who mainly quotes poetry at them and life seems a little bit mad - but gradually the children live up to it and start to understand the rhythms and patterns of local life.
