When her husband goes overseas to 'find himself', leaving his family's comfortable London lifestyle hanging in the balance, Chrissie uproots her teen daughters and loyal lodger to move to the West Country to help her mum and stepdad out on their failing vineyard.

Chrissie loves her London life and job as an events manager.
