Missy’s been a hot mess since her re­turn to Syd­ney af­ter her drug­fu­elled visit to the US. But when she ar­rived home the one man she thought would al­ways be there when she called was busy liv­ing in the coun­try pre­tend­ing to be some­one else, hid­ing from his dodgy ex-boss Edgar Thomp­son.

Once Cleaver (Richard Roxburgh) was back to be­ing his cheeky self, he was again too busy caught up try­ing to keep Thomp­son (John Wa­ters) out of jail to stop Missy (Adri­enne Pick­er­ing) from con­tin­u­ing her co­caine binge.

With­out Cleaver to keep her on some sort of straight and nar­row, Missy fell straight into the clutches of cor­rupt politi­cian turned TV host Cal Mc­Gre­gor (Damien Gar­vey). He was only too happy to oblige when Missy asked him for co­caine dur­ing an in­ter­view on his show. Now she’s moved in with him and en­joy­ing be­ing in a drug haze.

Fi­nally free of Thomp­son’s threats, Cleaver is now turn­ing his at­ten­tion to Missy, vow­ing to get her the help she needs. To track her down he en­lists the ser­vices of a client he’s just rep­re­sented in court. Af­ter res­cu­ing Missy, he begs his ex-wife Wendy (Caro­line Bra­zier) to give Missy a place to stay and de­spite Wendy’s de­sire to put the past be­hind her she agrees.

Now Wendy’s house­hold con­tains the odd com­bi­na­tion of her and Cleaver’s son Fuzz (Kee­gan Joyce) and his girl­friend, plus Cleaver and Missy, all un­der the same roof. But Fuzz is a bit like his fa­ther when it comes to women and while Missy is locked in a room at­tempt­ing to detox she is able to talk Fuzz into get­ting her drugs be­fore se­duc­ing him.

Things get ugly when Cal shows up look­ing for Missy, who is high again and man­ages to slip out while Cleaver and Fuzz get rid of Cal. Re­al­is­ing Missy’s gone, Fuzz bolts af­ter her with his par­ents close be­hind. Cleaver and Wendy might have to get Missy back to nor­mal be­fore Fuzz falls too deeply for her. Though Cleaver could be too dis­tracted try­ing to woo Wendy back to no­tice what Missy’s up to next.

CRAZY DAZE Chaotic Missy (Adri­enne Pick­er­ing) falls into the clutches of ly­ing politi­cian turned TV host Cal Mc­Gre­gor. HO­TEL Wendy (Caro­line Bra­zier) packs in the vis­i­tors at home.
