When, art teacher, Jack Munroe’s life is turned upside down by changes at school, he turns his back on the world. He walks out of his job, his wife Sally, and his two teenage children. In his absence, Sally ploughs on running her flower shop as best she can, but, as the weeks turn to months, the debts begin to rise. Something has to be done. When Jack returns home unexpectedly, he discovers Sally has been writing a book…a book about him…a comedy…destined to be a best-seller.
