A charming comedy, acted out in the early morning hours after a housewarming party, between the hostess, the single Laura (38 years), and the last remaining guest of the party, the divorced father, Danny, 42, who has just moved back to his mother. The action begins with an ‘almost-kiss’ and shows the characters fumbling attempts to get back to that point again. The piece is full of hopelessly embarrassing situations and is a touching portray of two singles and the difficult art of navigating in the waters of emotions and desires.
