New York City
Shirley, our heroine, wonders what has happened to her and is now feeling stagnant and in a rut. She finds herself regularly talking to the wall while preparing her husband’s chips and egg. When her best friend wins a trip-for-two to Greece, she packs her bags, leaves a note on the cupboard door in the kitchen, and heads for a fortnight of rest and relaxation. What she finds is a new awareness of who she is and what her life can be.
