When her husband David announces he's been offered a job in New York, Saoirse is thrilled. The glamour of the big city, the shopping, the culture, not to mention the free Manhattan apartment and business class air fare - what's not to like? There's just the small matter of making it work for their daughter, five-year-old Anna, who isn't so keen to leave her friends and school behind. The Big Apple in the middle of summer isn't quite the holiday Saoirse envisaged, and with David away with work, New York apartment sizes on the miniscule side, and the pace of life faster than the sleepy London suburbs, solo ex-pat parenting pushes Saoirse to her limits. And as the pressure builds and 'faking it till she makes it' isn't cutting it, there's only one thing for it - Saoirse and Anna need a new plan.
