Gerry McAllister (Stephen Rea), a city planner growing weary of his job's endless frustrations, and his wife, Ellie (Sinead Cusack), a bookstore clerk who wants to be a writer, are Irish immigrants in middle-class North London. The couple normally muddle through with relative cheer, but when their shady contractor pal, Howard (Philip Jackson), convinces them to let his identical-twin builders (Phil Daniels) remodel their bathroom, the additional stress reveals the strain in their marriage.
