When Gemma Palmer discovers that her boyfriend, Danny, has slept with one of her friends she - quite understandably - throws him out of the flat they share. She also resigns herself to a perpetually single, independent life, relying on no one and not wanting for anything.

The trouble is, she is still desperately in love with Danny, and although she is pained to admit it, equally desperately lost without him. As she tries to change her life for the better, and attempts to find true enjoyment in the single life, the same romantic questions keep arising.
