Two-time Silver Logie winner Jacqueline McKenzie (Romper Stomper) plays her daughter and Coco Jack Gillies (Maya the Bee) as her granddaughter. He has written multiple projects on assignment and has a knack for writing high concept comedies, with wins or being placed as a finalist in several international screenwriting awards.
