Shadrach, Daphne and Mrs Fa’amasino live in Housing NZ units in Ponsonby. One of the units has been a P house and has been vacated and boarded up by Housing NZ. Storm and her girlfriend have arrived from New Plymouth and need somewhere to live. They break into and squat in the boarded-up unit. Meanwhile Shadrach, Daphne and Mrs Fa’amasino have discovered that another who lives in the units, Thomas, is an ordained Catholic priest. Gradually they learn more about Thomas, who is ill but declining treatment.
