Sally's been living a comfortable but crushingly dull life with her partner of 10 years, David. When David makes a poorly timed and feebly executed attempt at a proposal, it sparks in her a personal crisis...
Emma and Sally are officially an item. Sort of. It's Sally's birthday and her parents are due to come for dinner, but Sally is unsure of how to broach the subject of Emma to her very straightlaced, church-going mum and dad. Emma... much less so.
It's a question that has been asked through the ages: can eggs be sexy? It's one Sally must answer as her company launches a campaign to make the humble egg seductive. However, as her new beau Emma becomes increasingly needy and demanding, Sally's performance at work begins to suffer, and her chances of promotion start to look bleak.
