After a spectacularly public nervous breakdown, faded ex-rocker Marianne Hope opens a retreat for those worn down celebrities needing to shelter from the spotlight. But while she is off cleansing her chakras, manager Tony may not have the best of intentions towards the recovering addicts at The Abbey.

Can the one medical professional on site, Dr Darren, find time to help the nymphomaniac pensioner, crack addict DJ and suicidal MP's wife. Or will one meltdown for the waiting tabloid cameras?
