" "The day Stacey Grant loses her job feels like the last day of her " "life. As Stacey starts to reconcile her old life with the new - one without " "professional achievements or meetings, but instead, long days at " "home with her dog and ailing mother, waiting for her successful " "husband to come home - she at least has the girls to fall back on; " "Beth, Melissa and Gaby. The girls, now women, had been best friends " "for years but when Stacey’s redundancy forces a betrayal to emerge " "that was supposed to remain secret, their long cherished friendships " "will be pushed to their limits.
