For Stephen Carreras, life is in turmoil. His career with Britain's worst chocolate company is heading for the rocks when it's taken over by US confectionery giant Schmaltz. He's just turned forty, he's messed up on marriage and is struggling to keep a toehold in the lives of his monosyllabic teenage children.
Then he meets Rachel, who dances to a very different beat. She challenges him to do good among the carnage that surrounds him. But to do so, he must confront his past and work out all over again what really matters...
