DescriptionThis situation comedy revolves around Emma who has just left her husband and moved with her daughter Jenny to live with her lover, middle class Diana. Diana, a child welfare doctor, has yet to come to terms with the changes that this will entail. Emma has an unthinking husband and Diana, a demanding neighbour, both of whom find themselves at Diana's while she's out. Add to this a Black woman who has travelled across town with her two children and a dog and you can imagine the confusion that results. Based on interviews with over 30 women about their experiences of motherhood, this sit-com manages to capture all the traumas and confessions which can face various women during one day.
