Snakes and ladders
Threat advisory: Under evaluation
Two female roommates in their thirties eke out a living as street performers in Dublin. While waiting for the big break (acceptance at the Edinburgh Festival), their partnership suffers a major rupture when Jean (Pom Boyd) suddenly cancels her wedding and splits from her long-term boyfriend, and then accepts a job as an on-air commentator/host at a television station.
Her ex-partner Kate (Gina Moxley) finds mutual consolation with the jilted boyfriend, a situation that gains complexity when she discovers that the evening's drunken tryst has left her pregnant. When Jean 's affair with a younger producer plays itself out, and she is moved to reconcile first with her soul mate and then with her lover, the web of deceit and dependence grows denser.
