Five colleagues. One dreadful day. And the biggest shock of her life for high-flying career girl Katherine Casey, who'd believed she was safe from the job losses coming to Qwertec Solutions.
The mood is sombre as she and devastated ex-colleagues gather in the pub.
But a few drinks later, with the discovery of a shared passion for the silver screen, things begin to look up. And the Forced Redundancy Film Club is born. Over a year, Katherine, along with office oddball Alice, stressed out mother-of-three Lisa, professional sorrow-drowner Martin and cheating-heart Jamie meet up each month to watch their favourite classic films.
As they journey through Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Wizard of Oz, Brokeback Mountain and many others, each faces their own personal challenges: from negative-equity hell to heartache, loneliness, toddler-strife - and the wrath of a certain bunny boiler. And each finds comfort in the one place where they're guaranteed a happy ending.
But will the dreams they dare to dream every really come true?
Only time will tell...
