A middle class, judgmental snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend, and so is forced into exile with her bohemian sister who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate.
Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton), who, while celebrating her husband of 40 years (John Sessions)' retirement, discovers he's been having an affair with her best friend. Stunned, and needing somewhere to figure things out, she finds refuge with her estranged, bohemian older sister Bif (Celia Imrie), a woman who couldn't be more different from Sandra if she tried.
Could the change in scenery and dynamic be just what Sandra needs? Especially when she joins a community dance class and potential new romance with Charlie (Timothy Spall). Also stars Joanna Lumley.
