Wendy Craig stars as Ria, a suburban housewife frustrated with mundane family life, craving some escape from the drudgery. As hard as she tries she has never mastered the domestic arts and her well-meant efforts in the kitchen result in spectacular disaster. Husband Ben and layabout sons Russell and Adam live in fear of mealtimes as unidentified creations need coaxing from the pan and the words egg custard induce panic. Desperate for some excitement in her life, could a chance meeting with the charming and wealthy Leonard be the answer she is looking for?
