What do you do when your world turns upside down? Cate and John's marriage has hit the rocks. Now they're trapped in a nightmarish limbo while they struggle to sell the family home. When a rather unusual young couple fall in love with the house, it looks like the answer to their prayers - but be careful what you wish for...
