She's a small-town girl who dreams of the big city.
She has a heart of gold and an iron belief in the power of control tights.
She has a steady job and a loyal boyfriend (though he hasn't put a ring on it even after seven years).
Then one disastrous romantic getaway convinces Aisling to leave him behind and head for the bright lights.
But with glamorous new flatmates, a scandal at work and a weird love square, Aisling has no idea what's about to hit her.
A hilarious, modern romantic comedy that will have you laughing-out-loud even as you're rooting for its winning hapless heroine.
