30-somethings Sam and Jamie have started to figure it all out - they’ve got their jobs, their flat, and each other. But they’ve also got the raggedy sofa they found on the street the year they met. So one Sunday morning it’s decided - out with the old. 

But while taking it down to the street to be picked up, the pair lock themselves out of the flat. No money, no phones, and Sam’s in her pyjamas. Stranded in the limbo-land of the communal stairwell they have a rare, uninterrupted chance to re-assess.  

Maybe they’re not actually that sure of where their (shared) lives are headed. Maybe they’re not as close as they thought…
