Sheila (Maureen Lipman), an attractive widow, is facing middle-age and dire financial straits after the sudden death of her husband. Left with no life insurance, she’s faced with the awful prospect of having to sell all her cherished possessions.
Without a regular income, she and her twenty-one-year-old daughter Monica, have to make the most of their one asset -- their house, #20. They decide to rent rooms in their home to lodgers in order to make some money--but things don’t go quite as smoothly as planned. This comedy has real potential for raising the roof!
