The all-star cast includes Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street), Anthony Flanagan (Shameless), Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), Anita Dobson and Jo Joyner (EastEnders). In 'Fledgling', Gumede is a policeman's wife who decides to spice up her life with a bit of shoplifting. 'The House' sees a postman's parents sign over their house to him and his young family only for it to lead to a surprise revelation from his resentful sister. 'Value' sees an inexperienced teacher feign cancer after stress causes her hair to fall out. In 'Hush Little Baby', directed by Robert Glenister, a family is thrown into disarray when their daughter suddenly stops talking and they find themselves filling the silence with their own fears and confessions. In 'Back By Six', Craig Kelly's recently divorced cab driver makes a desperate decision after struggling with being apart from his two young children. Five more hugely entertaining, keenly observed and beautifully performed stories of lives in flux.
