This funny and touching story centers on Kate, a forty-year-old respectable and successful headmistress in a small English village who gets together with her single friends, Molly, a doctor, and Janie, a local police detective, every Monday to drink, eat chocolate and decide who is the Saddest of the Week. Things start to turn displeasing between the three friends when Kate begins an affair with Jed, a sexy 25-year old ex-pupil, and is no longer the Saddest of the Week!
