Peter & Jen, are working hard to keep up a rundown North London cinema, but making a living on a diet of old Woody Allen movies and movie themed pastries is trickier even than it sounds, especially with a heritage Wurlitzer that needs fixing and locals who still resent them for no longer doing the Bingo.
Peter's brother, Salvador, has wanted a career in medicine since he was a boy, but the red-haired -- and usually red-faced -- junior doctor may not be the best match for the frontline practice of the local sexual health clinic. And it certainly doesn't seem the best place for him to find a girlfriend.
Jen's cousin Kate's architecture career isn't on the up as fast as she'd like, either. Getting over her ex is taking longer than she hoped too, and the fondness for high stakes poker he left her with is proving an expensive therapy.
Jason, a wannabe rock star and has-to-be plumber, is Peter's best friend from a childhood when they were both briefly TV stars, on a zeitgeist-defining teen drama. While it's a time Peter would rather forget, Jason sees his past as the passport to his future, and the much-needed money a possible reunion offers could be the temptation needed to make his best pal think again.
As reality gets in the way, and dreams get further out of reach, the friends try to figure what to do when life doesn't work out how it does in the movies.
