Take one everyday family, heat to 36 degrees, cover in suntan oil, leave in hired car to cook, then stand back and watch, as years of family tensions boil over in a hilarious mix of laughter and tears.

‘Holiday of a Lifetime‘. Marie won it on a scratch card. ‘Sun, sea, sand, an exotic island paradise’. The winning card said it all, the heaven… ‘an all expenses paid fortnight in a luxury hotel’ and the hell… ‘for all the family!’ The family, that included Katy, Marie’s daughter, who’s never quite left home, her husband, Graham, once the love of Marie’s life, now 15 years past his sell by date… and his Mum! It’s a once in a lifetime experience all right, an experience that will change their lives!

What is Katy’s secret? Why is Mum behind bars? Who stole Gran!? Find out with Fiona Knowles as she takes you on a comic, compassionate catastrophe of family relationships.
