Fifty-nine-year-old factory worker Beryl is totally obsessed with drawing, and her fixation dominates the entire household. Apart from her husband, Ivor, Beryl’s model and muse, the whole family is addicted to something: her son, Colin, is a technical geek and her sister, Beverly, is a fanatically narcissistic taxidermist. Obsession is in the family’s DNA.
