Dr Sweet's life is largely unremarkable. A recent divorce and ongoing custody battle; a tame affair that's gradually grinding to a halt; a job which seems to have stopped halfway up the professional escalator; friends who are too preoccupied with their own lives to spare much of a thought for anyone else . . . In fact, the only bright spark in Dr Sweet's life is his terrifically talented and terribly precocious daughter, Cordie. With Christmas family hell just around the corner, however, in the shape of his parents and ex-wife, Dr Sweet's life is about to take a turn for the worse. Sent to the local shop for some last-minute supplies, this is the day he manages first to lose his mistress, then his job and, finally, his freedom, as the police arrest him for murder.This is a deeply amusing comedy about an unremarkable man trapped in remarkable circumstances.
