Synopsis

It's a rollercoaster coming-of-age story. Focus is on the three kids thrown into extraordinary circumstances, which brings out best and worst in their relationship to themselves, each other, death and having to be/become an adult. Mum's corpse only appears briefly in the first episode, and the morbid aspects of the story are undertoned in relationship to the subtle humor, the kid's emotional development story and the basic excitement of finding out who your mother and father really is.
