Nothing is going right for Nell. Her husband, Ben, has left her for a younger, blonder woman. She goes to on holiday to Barbados with her daughter, only to be mugged and have her bag stolen on the way back. It's crisis time - and Nell makes two decisions: She will take lessons in self-defence; and she will look up her rather lovely old boyfriend Jas, whom she abandoned in favour of Ben long ago. Her controlling mother always thought she had made the Wrong Decision in picking Ben over Jas, and now Nell wants to find out if, perhaps, her mother was right. Meanwhile, at the self-defence classes, her instructor Phil is taking a close - perhaps too close - interest in her welfare. Is Nell ready to move on? Or does she just want to return to a time when she was young, carefree and happy?
