Dad arrives home to find his wife in a state of hormonal flux, the house a mess and the day in tatters. Once it dawns on him what time of the month it is, he sets to putting his monthly emergency plan in motion - identifying ways to humour the scary monster that Mum has become. Meantime, Mum moves from despair and hopelessness to complete rage. It is only when Dad and the kids manage to swing her mood toward guilt and remorse that they can reach the real Mum, coerce her back to her normal loving self and return to the usual, more manageable levels of chaos.
