With two 20-something children and a dubious boyfriend eating her out of house and home, Maggie, who has just turned 50, is beginning to think she's losing the will to live. Things seem to be getting worse when she hears a voice speaking to her from the corner of the kitchen. It seems that the only one who understands her predicament is her ever-empty and long-suffering fridge.
But unlike poor beleaguered Maggie, this fridge has got "attitude"', and he has had enough.
Maggie soon discovers that the fridge knows rather more about what's going on in her house than she does - and he is about to put her straight. As far as her cool new friend is concerned, Maggie needs to take control of her own destiny - and that means jettisoning the freeloaders, even if it means a few tears along the way.
