Synopsis

Eileen is a mother of two children, who are both about to fly the nest. Summer stretches out in front of the family who, except for Eileen, have plans to go abroad, to a festival, to their dad's wedding. A new relationship suddenly comes into her life, and briefly she blooms. However Bill the new boyfriend, a pot smoking ex-cricketer has his own problems.

Their fling opens the door to insecurity and paranoia for Eileen, and one day under the guise of celebrating her new 'love' she has a drink. Once she starts she doesn't stop.

The film treads a constant line between darkness and humour as it moves from its beginning in a sedate suburban cricket club to its conclusion at a music festival.
