Overworked care assistant Julie believes marriage is the golden ticket to happiness. Yet the likelihood of her narcissistic boyfriend Jim proposing is beyond remote. As yet another Valentine’s Day looms, all Julie wants is to keep her head down and get through the day. But that’s not going to happen. Impeding Julie’s attempts to simply get through the day are Tracy: her younger colleague, intent on sabotage and with her eye on Jim; and Angie, a grand matriarch with a score to settle.
