Sujatha, who has recently arrived in Australia from India, spends a week living with three other young people in their Share house.
It is a fairly common practice for young people to move from the family home into a house that they share with other people, people that are not necessarily family or even friends. This is often the first taste of independent life, with all of its responsibilities and challenges.
Sujatha joins in all aspects of this shared life, helping with the household jobs and enjoying the household fun and games.
