Neville Sutcliffe leaves the familiar safety of his Blackpool fish and chip shop in order to take over the running of his late father's seaside rock factory - alongside family he never even knew existed.

He immediately gets on the wrong side of a woman at Littlehampton train station. Unfortunately for Neville, she turns out to be his step-sister and new business partner, Dorothy!

To make matters worse, the long-established family enterprise is failing. £30,000 in debt, to be precise. Can Neville save the business and fit in with his new friends, family and staff?
