This is a wickedly funny romantic comedy about what happens when forty-something, mother-of-two Beth is dumped after 25 years of marriage. She gears up her working life a notch, takes in bed-and-breakfast visitors - and finds herself attracted to Owen, a cynical touring actor who is committed to very little except his job.
