It’s day one of peacetime, England is the same but different. In a house in Essex, Helen comes face to face with her best friend Cee for the first time in a decade. As the night unfolds and their husbands celebrate the hard won war, Helen and Cee wrestle with their part in it and what the future will look like.

Inspired by the ancient Greek story of Agamemnon this is a tale of anger, forgiveness and women who will not stay.
