Why do four women turning sixty get together to make pineapple tarts, and will their friendship survive the experience?
KATHY (Sarah Shahrum) is a savvy TV journalist at the top of her game who can barely operate an electric kettle. SOPHIE (Sandra Sodhy) is a literature teacher and devoted wife & mother until her husband STANLEY (Nigel Skelchy) decides to take up wearing lycra, long-distance cycling, and a mistress young enough to be his daughter. INEZ (Diong Chae Lian) calls the shots at a backpacker hostel and fusses over the future of her unmarried PhD-holding son. Widowed ANURA (Mary George) runs a coconut candy business from her home kitchen.
Set in the early days of Covid-19, Pineapple Tarts explores the impact of the pandemic on women’s lives, the depths of female friendships, the secrets we share and the ones we hold back.
