When her husband Shafiq arrives home from the sub-continent with a new wife in tow, who is not only much younger but very pregnant at that, Sofia decides she won’t stand for it. Aided by her daughter Afshan, Sofia weighs up her options. In the meantime, there is the community-centre day trip to a stately home to look forward.
