sui­ci­dal gam­bling ad­dict Roz (the ex­cel­lent Paula Mal­com­son) re­turns to the spot­light as her boss is about to un­cover the mas­sive fraud she has com­mit­ted. Fac­ing the dev­as­tat­ing con­se­quences of her ac­tions, Roz re­mains hell-bent on end­ing her life and de­cides to pre­pare her squab­bling kids for cop­ing with­out her by tragi­com­i­cally teach­ing them life skills, from pasta-mak­ing to dish­washer-load­ing – all credit to writer Jimmy Mcgovern for adding black hu­mour to such a mov­ing story. Poor Father Michael is at a loss as he des­per­ately pleads with Roz to give up her tragic plan – and as he con­tin­ues to be eaten up about his own past, he has an­other heart-to-heart with his old pal Father Peter.
