Following their application for divorce - but before the decree absolute - married couple George and Suzy Bassett each, unbeknownst to the other, decide to move to the country, escaping the London suburbs full of their memories together. Unfortunately, after having looked at moving shortly before their marriage broke down, they have their eyes on the same area and end up becoming next-door neighbours, with only a thin wall between them!
