Emily lives in Sydney, where she works for the local council. She has been considering a tree change for a while, as she is musically inclined and has not had the time to pursue her hobbies. She receives a call from her aunty June, who lives in the Queensland town of Woodford. June is 90 years old and quite frail, and tells Emily she misses her. Junes house is large and she is afraid that it is getting beyond her. Emily decides to visit June, and finds Woodford a delightful town. It is picturesque, and has many musicians and artists, as well as being a stones throw from an annual Folk Festival. June asks Emily if she would consider moving into the house to look after her. Emily states that she has a job and an apartment in Sydney, and it would be quite a big move. June replies saying Emily s Sydney residence is a small rental flat if Emily will look after her until she passes away, she can have the title of the Woodford property which is large and in the sought after Girard's Hill district. After considering her options, Emily packs up her life and sets off to Woodford. She does not find a job, but spends her time looking after June and the big house on the hill.
