The Catchprices of suburban Sydney, Australia, are a family of misfits coming apart at the seams. Sixteen-year-old Benny seems to be the only one who cares that the family auto dealership is near collapse, despite some creative bookkeeping. Things get even more interesting with the arrival of Maria Takis, the pregnant tax collector. Can Benny convince her to drop the investigation?
