The relationship between two sisters is put to the test when an ex-boyfriend is hired to paint their house in this new black comedy.
About the Show:
A casual encounter or an obvious set up? Abbie’s sister decides to get their home painted but fails to mention who she has in mind for the job. Enter Eddie - Abbie’s ex - a man with more baggage than BusÁras and his impulsive young colleague.
Is this is a simple girl-meets-ex-boy, or are there deeper motives at play?
