A marriage is in crisis following husband Kev’s revelation to his wife Jane that he is in love with someone else. The arrival of Kev’s best friend, with his whirlwind of a girlfriend, triggers a series of confessions that threaten to upturn all of their lives. The strain becomes unbearable for Jane during increasingly desperate attempts to discuss their problems, whilst hiding the truth from their two young daughters.An insightful and often painfully amusing drama that opens a window on a woman’s struggles as she comes to terms with the sacrifices she has made to be a mother.
