Danny, a young slob with sincere socialist views, works in a D-I-Y megastore and is stealing copper wire from a power station to repay a gambling debt at precisely the same moment that Veronica, fashion writer for a local rag, runs out of petrol nearby. Both are standing on a power grid and are hit by lightning, 'swapping' bodies as a result. The apparent Veronica, inhabited by Danny's personality, is found and rushed to hospital, being reunited with partner Jay but Danny's outlook inhabits her being, shocking Jay with her crudity. On return to work she resolves to make her column more socially aware and re-visits Danny's workplace to seek him out via colleagues Fiona and Pete. Danny is initially amnesiac from his ordeal, only grasping the connection by seeing Veronica's column in the paper but dares not return home because he is in arrears to the landlord. Thus Fiona and Veronica's visit to the flat to find him yields no result.
