Synopsis

Our Take

Staff

Daisy Haggard plays Miri, a girl who just got out of an 18-year prison sentence for a crime she committed in her teens. And what an important 18 years she missed: so many technological developments – and actually much of her own development-, plus, shocker, it looks like her boyfriend from back then did not wait around for her. 

But Miri’s biggest problem is that the town hates her guts. So the show is her navigating all of that while trying to get a job and put her life on track. It’s an endearing comedy about fighting for normalcy when nothing seems to be going your way.
