  • Synopsis

    In her gilded cage out in the leafy suburbs of Dublin, Mrs. T lives the middle class dream in a state of quiet desperation. Filling her life with writer’s groups, yoga holidays, school reunions and obsessive cleaning is not quite enough. Her marriage is a sham, her children want to get away as far and fast as possible. She has to pick up the pieces or succumb to depression. Every Tuesday, Ruby, her cleaning lady, calls to clean the house and blow away the cobwebs of Mrs. T’s life with sarcasm, wit and common sense.
