A comedy about arrested development. Anna is stuck. Her greatest happiness was her relationship with her twin brother, but since his death, 18 months ago, she’s on a downward spiral that includes returning to her home-town, abandoning hope of a sex life, and making the shed at the bottom of her Mum and Nan’s garden her home. When her Mum serves her an ultimatum, Anna’s life of emotional isolation becomes impossible to maintain.
