Meet husband and wife, Simon and Carey – the perfect couple. He has some news to share, but she gets in first with a jar. The swearing has to stop. They are having a baby!

When Carey enlists the help of a new musician friend to throw a birthday concert for her husband we discover life-changing secrets of their past… 

Recently released as a film, Angharad Jones directs this award-winning bittersweet comedy offering audiences a warm embrace, full of heartbreak, humour and songs.
