Gwen's life has stalled. She's in her mid-thirties, perpetually single, her friends are busy procreating in the country and conversations with her parents seem to revolve entirely around herbaceous borders and the council's wheelie-bin timetable. Above all she's lonely. But then, isn't everyone? When Gwen's made redundant from a job she drifted into a decade ago and never left, she realises it's time to make a change. Over what might be the best - and most solitary - meal she's ever eaten, Gwen vows to find something meaningful to do with her life.
