When Jean recovers from breast cancer she realises it's time to make every day matter, finding renewed optimism for a brighter and more fulfilling future. After finding support hard to come by she finds inspiration in a hidden artistic talent, and true friendship from an unconditional source. Not everyone finds her newly acquired confidence infectious. Jean's neighbours Peggy and Faith are compulsive obsessive housewives, whose lives appear to be as sparkling as the houses they live in? They both exist in a cosy, safe environment where 'risk' is a four letter word. But is anyone's life really so stain free? It will all come out in the wash!
