Think marriage means happily-ever-after? Think again…
Selina and Lottie are complete opposites. Where Selina is poised but prudish,Lottie is quirky and emotional. Selina is the dutiful mother of three children and able manager of their stylish suburban home. Lottie lives with her eccentric teenage daughter in a small city apartment fit to bursting with color and happy chaos. But these women also have one shocking similarity: they're married to the same man…and they've just found out he's dead.

Neither knows a thing about the other until the day of Simon's funeral, where the scandalous truth is revealed in front of everyone they know.
