A disparate band of middle-aged couples, with nothing more in common than the male halves' wish to play a cricket match, are brought together in a heady sun-splashed environment of surprising tension, back-biting, typically English understatement and marital woe.
As team captain Roger ostensibly tries to get the team organised for the afternoon's fixture, his players and their partners fight over all manner of subjects - but there's a far bigger secret lurking beneath the surface of this calm English cricket pitch.
