A show about love, security and finding family, even when it's not your own.
The Rookery - seafront lodging house, variable rates, non-negotiable - has a vacant room and eccentric landlady, June Pursglove, has bills mounting up, the boiler is broken and her unlikely collection of current lodgers are proving problematic. In particular wannabe business guru and self monikered femme fatale, Karen Buckle, who has had enough of June's lack lustre facilities and is preparing for a life changing keynote speech presentation tonight. In Swindon. Enters Becky, an aspiring novelist, looking for inspiration and a new life. She may have got more than she bargained for.
