Zoë is a poor single mother with her four little kids. They run into her old friend David Farrell who has return to town and asks her out. She lies that she is only babysitting for her friend. She brings along her kids on the date but leaves them outside the pub.

It's an intriguing premise. I love the desperation of Natalie Press. All the wasps and bees allusion may be overdone. It only needs the last wasp. It's a nice short which could have been expanded into a full length feature. More could be done.
