In Honour, Kathleen and Frank are amicably separated, and share the parenting of their young daughter, Flo. But when Frank finds a new partner and wants a divorce, Kathleen is hurt. And Flo can't understand why they all can't live together. In Other People's Children, Ruth and Scotty live in a big share house that's breaking up. Scotty is trying to hold on, remembering the early days of stories, laughter and singing--and when the kids were everyone's kids. But now the bitterness has crept in and their friendship is broken. Ruth is ready to move on--and she'll take her kids with her.
