takes the anniversary of the publication of Madame Bovary - a novel that scandalized France - as the starting point for this tragi-comic love story. In the sticky, polyester heat of summer on a Devonshire trading estate Emma Barnicott dreams of a life beyond the dusty venetian blinds of her office.

When her online lover suggests meeting, Emma's elaborate web of debt and deceit begins to pull her stable world apart.
