Wally’s mind boggles at the complicated set of romantic rules that have sprung up in the last 20 years, but he manages to stumble his way into a budding romance with the young widow Carolyn.
Seeking respite from his ever-mutable ex-wife, Wally decides to take his brand new paramour on a short-term sabbatical to the University of Tasmania. Only time will tell if hapless Wally Baxter can get his life and love in order in the land down under.
