When Jack Munroe’s life is turned upside down by changes at the school where he teaches art, he turns his back on the world – he walks out on his job, his wife Sally and two university-bound teenagers without explanation, leaving only unanswered questions and copies of Which Caravan and a book of Hot Sex Tips on the bedside table. In his absence Sally ploughs on running her flower shop as best she can but the weeks turn to months and the debts begin to rise.
Jack unexpectedly returns home three months later to find that to occupy herself, Sally has been writing a book – a comedy about him – which promises to be a best-seller. Unlike the promising artist Jack once was, Sally has the popular touch and with the publication of her book talk of television sitcoms grow and Jack’s foibles are on show for all the world to see (and laugh at). As they gradually repair their relationship after Jack’s return, it’s clear that the roles in their relationship have been turned on their head with Jack left to run the flower shop and field phone calls for Sally in this heartwarming comedy examining the trials and tribulations of modern married life.
