A riotous comedy about love, death and responsibility.

For forty-something Hildy, political activism comes easier than dealing with the disorder of her family life: her druggie son; her philandering soon-to-be-ex husband; her father, misbehaving in a hugely expensive retirement home.

Then there‘s Shirley, Hildy’s charismatic mother – a former pop star with a fondness for booze – who sets up camp in Hildy’s spare room to belittle her from close range.

By day, Hildy leads the City’s cleaners in revolt against the bankers. But by night, she dreams of unsettling acts of violence.
