After the awkward end to their not-a-date date, Miri offers to help Billy sort through Anna’s things. Although picking through the personal belongings of your crush’s dead wife might seem awful to most, Miri takes it in her stride - until she makes a very personal discovery.

Things get worse for Miri when Janice tells her that she needs a bank account before she can start working at the supermarket. Miri does have a bank account, but hasn’t used it since 2001. Unfortunately, the branded piggy banks she was given all those years ago are no longer relevant, and once again Miri must navigate a world she barely recognises. Show less
