Storyline

Vanetia Casey (Maxine Peake), the spirited and impossibly optimistic center of the Casey family, is working hard to get life back to normal after her 38 year-old husband, Conor (Edward MacLiam), suffers a rare stroke which changes his personality. Tweedy American doctor, Ted Fielding, (Will Forte) arrives in Ireland to stay with them for two months: his research grant providing the Caseys with essential financial aid. Vanetia's a dynamo. But with two young kids and both men in the house, she's feeling bombarded and initially treats Ted and his study of Conor with resistance. Only when she observes Ted's calming influence on the family does she begin to value his friendship, and, in return, Ted enjoys their heady, happy-go-lucky world. But Ted's continued presence in the house sets the family on course for an emotional collision. Directed by Academy Award®-nominee Steph Green and featuring Saturday Night Live star Will Forte in an impressive dramatic debut, this life-affirming film ... Written by -Anonymous

It's hard to tell what the right choices are in life. It's even harder if someone close to you has an illness, how you should react to that. And if there is also an outside force trying to come in from the outside (whatever the original motives are), that it gets even tougher. So decisions are being made that are not only rational.

But while this drama seems to be concentrating on an illness, it is giving us human beings, who just are reacting to each other and the circumstances they find themselves in. This either will appeal to you right away or you will dislike it. Good thing is, you can tell early on if this drama is something you want to watch or not
