Plot summary[edit]

Whately and Steadman take the leading roles of Jack and Jenny Evans, a couple seeking a divorce after their 27-year marriage hits the rocks. While their daughter attempts to reconcile her parents, the couple's respective lawyers, Steve Hollister (played by Mangan) and Tara Walker (Pierson) are out to exploit the situation for their own ends after discovering a mutual attraction. And then there's the question of who gets custody of the family's pet dog, Bounder. Hayley Nolan also stars as sultry Office Assistant Trudy.
