Sometimes it takes a fresh pair of eyes to see yourselves clearly ...Henry is a young, hip, radio DJ; Philip is an ex-MP ruined by scandal and disowned by his party; Diana, his long-suffering wife; Marianne's replaced her husband with chocolate eclairs and gin; and Lizzie is battling with illness.
When Eva, a naive and happy Polish backpacker comes into their lives, the values of their comfortable world clash with those of Eastern Europe. And the five English characters find comedy, tragedy and romance unfolding with bewildering speed.
