When serious man flu hits the flat, Zoe is forced to help out at the office but a seriously suspicious business deal has her begging James to stagger in…

Comedy by Guy Meredith about a group of expats sharing a flat in Hong Kong. Into the lives of unsuccessful architect James and failed-everything Malcolm comes Zoe on a one-way ticket from England to start a new life.

After an unpromising start, she moves in with James and Malcolm, convinced that she can get these two undomesticated alpha males to change their ways and become more organised at home and work. She also becomes part of the scene at the Shakes, the local expat pub run by Wanda and visited by James's boss Mr Ampersand who gives her a job as his PA.
