Rosa is a dynamic journalist in her thirties with a handsome boyfriend in politics and a group of prosperous friends. Her life is the very picture of glamour and achievement.
But after her mother dies, Rosa suffers an attack of 'what's the point?' and walks out of her job. Before long she finds herself dependent on the patience and charity of friends, some of whom are far less supportive than she imagined.
As she tries to find work, to wade through the books she's always meant to read and to appease her worried bank manager, her bid for freedom turns into a slow, comic, fall from modern grace.
