Geraldine Doogue goes back to dinner with women across Australia to find out how their faith and values, hopes and dreams, careers and relationships have fared. In 2005 Compass put the great Australian suburban dream to the test over dinner in Kellyville in Sydney's north-west. Geraldine got up close and personal with five fabulous women, quickly dubbed the real desperate housewives, who were all juggling jobs, mortgages and raising families in the 'McMansion' belt. It was a lively, no-holds-barred discussion. In this program they do it all again, and we find out how the women's hopes and dreams have survived the past seven years.
