A piercing scream splits the dawn silence of a leafy, suburban arcadia and Cleaver (Richard Roxburgh) and Barney (Russell Dykstra) are soon defending an IT lecturer accused of severing his neighbour's penis with garden shears after an escalating dispute over a child's birthday party. The conservative judge is determined that this trial will not be allowed to lower the tone of his courtroom. Barney and Nicole (Kate Box) are failing to end their affair, despite Nicole's approaching wedding. Wendy (Caroline Brazier) is falling for Roger (Martin Sacks), the husband of Fuzz's (Keegan Joyce) ex-girlfriend, while Fuzz has an age-appropriate girlfriend with a surprise of her own. Scarlet (Danielle Cormack) and David (Matt Day) are firmly on Cal McGregor's (Damien Garvey) hook, but David's colleagues push him to sacrifice Scarlet to save himself. Can Scarlet bring herself to ask for help from the only lawyer devious and unethical enough to get her out from under it?
