Fate is sealed when nine people - 5 individuals and 2 couples - find themselves in an estate agent's office at the same time, aimlessly searching for a suitable home. Realising that none can afford a property alone, the newly formed band of friends pool their money and purchase a single large house to make their collective own.

The series follows the mad-cap lives of this disparate bunch, who constantly flit in and out of each other's rooms, and where nobody holds a secret for too long.
