Set in present-day Dublin, two best friends Laura (Holliday Grainger) and Tyler (Alia Shawkat) live their late 20s in a whirlwind of fun and freedom amidst the pills, thrills and bellyaches of the party scene. That is, until Laura unexpectedly meets – and gets engaged to – a classical pianist named Jim who is the antithesis of Tyler and the world she inhabits with Laura. How will their lives change? Will the optimism of their freewheeling friendship survive?

Based on the novel by Emma Jane Unsworth, and directed by Sophie Hyde, this acclaimed Australian-Irish drama explores the complexity and messiness of life and the friendships that populate it.
