Meet the Wallers is an unexpected journey deep into the mystery of family and relationship.
A true story about commitment; commitment to marriage, to your art, to your truth, and to making a film spanning two decades.
Mark Waller loves to paint the seascapes around beautiful Lennox Head. He is a dreamer who sees angels in the street. His obsessive belief that charity begins at home doesn't jibe with his vivacious wife Nicola who wishes she were the charity. But Mark the painter often can't see what's in front of him. Nicola suffers from depression. Their daughters, Jasmine and Emily - babies at the outset and graduates by the end of our story – negotiate their parents' issues while juggling their own sibling rivalries. When Mark is diagnosed with a deadly Melanoma the fault lines in the Waller family erupt with surprising results. Filmed over 20 years, MEET THE WALLERS is a remarkable window on family life, a meditation on art, mortality, philanthropy and happiness.
