By Sam Shepard. Adapted by John Peacock. Austin, a successful screenwriter, visits his mother's home 40 miles east of Los Angeles to house-sit while she is away in Alaska. While there, his older, estranged brother Lee decides to take the opportunity to drop in for a charged confrontation. As the pair clash, Austin's latest screenplay ends up getting hijacked by his pushy, con-artist brother, and the two realise they must co-operate to write a story that could make or break both their lives. Real-life siblings Robert and Philip Glenister star, working together for the first time in their careers.
