The Family Law unfolds in the dysfunctional world of one Chinese-Australian family, as seen through the eyes of 14-year-old Benjamin Law. As Benjamin dreams of soap-opera stardom, his parents contemplate separation. Over the course of one long, hot Queensland summer, the self-absorbed clarinet-playing teenager increasingly finds himself embroiled in other people’s dramas.
A six-part series created by critically acclaimed writer Benjamin Law and adapted from his hit 2010 memoir of the same name. This is the story of a quirky Chinese-Australian family on the Sunshine Coast over the course of a long hot summer, as told by 14-year old Benjamin, slightly self-obsessed with aspirations to be famous despite his severe lack of talent. For the Law family, all communication can lead to misunderstanding and unlikely comedy stems from tragedy. This is a show about sabotaged expectations, growing pains, finding your place in the world, and the strange embarrassment we feel towards the people we’re supposed to love the most: our family.
