Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe) and Chris Geere (You’re the Worst) are among the many recognizable faces that star in this clever dark comedy. Áine is Irish but lives in London where she teaches English as a second language. She checks out of rehab and tries to re-navigate the aspects of her life that drove up her stress before: failed relationships, pressure from her family to have kids, rats in her flat – you name it.
