As Prime Minister, Andrew Dugdale (Shaun Micallef) mattered. He dined with presidents and kings, hosted world summits and changed the lives of millions of his fellow Australians.

No, his inquisitive ghostwriter Ellen has an inconvenient appetite for the truth. After blowing the advance for his memoirs but writing nothing in return, the Ex-PM must accept Ellen into his dysfunctional household (one that includes a wife in name only, a grown up daughter with father issues, his former Chief of Staff who knows where the bodies are buried, a manager under house arrest and a chauffeur with a metal plate in his head).
