Bunny King is a single mother living in Auckland but without her kids. She's homeless, crashing on her sister and brother-in-law's couch and supplementing the meagre benefit with the cash from washing car windscreens at an intersection - as it happens one of the most dangerous occupations you can find but the camaraderie amongst her fellow window washers is something for her to cling on to. We don't know why the state has custody of her kids, but we can guess that it must have been something traumatic because Bunny is perpetually on edge and desperate to get them back. But to get them back, first she needs a home for them and in this crazy market? Well, tell her she's dreamin' .
