Fifteen minute comic stories about two old friends

Bill (Stephen Mangan) works as an economist in a right wing institute giving succour to bankers and businessmen.

Bella (Claire Skinner) teaches yoga, waters the plants in Canary Wharf and holds a Proust seminar for retirees.

But years ago they shared a flat before Bill got married and moved to the States. Now he's back and he's feeling a little off kilter; his son's stopped talking to him, his wife's not interested, so he decides to hook up again with Bella. Once a month they meet for lunch, where they talk about everything; the one thing they don't talk about is their platonic affection.
