Michelle, who lives in Orpington, decides to strike up a relationship with Randall, a man on Death Row.

Michelle is a happy, garrulous woman with a great social life and an opinion on everything. She makes Randall audio tapes to cover for his probable lack of education. She thinks that poor Randall, locked up all day, would welcome this outlet.

Michelle promises herself and Randall that these will be the unexpurgated confessions of a bubbly housewife. But as the relationship unfolds, it becomes clear that she is trapped in her house and she isn't quite as bubbly as she would like to think.
