Synopsis
The Dunn family are gathered around the TV to watch one of their own go for Olympic glory on the other side of the world. Their five minutes of fame is eagerly anticipated but soon becomes 24 hours of dysfunctional family mayhem. Chrissy, swimmer Carol's twin sister, does not even want to watch the event and has to be persuaded to attend by a local TV cameraman. Her older sisters are in conflict over a pregnancy and she has little in common with her mother. As the race nears, the family tensions mount and difficult revelations are made.
