All is moderately lovely in Anthony Lyle's London garden - and then the sky falls in.
His wife Zoe says she is going to leave him. They have weathered a fair few rows during their married life, but this time Zoe seems strangely determined. Lyle's gradual realisation of her determination, her refusal to give him a real reason, his total inability to understand why, and his wilder and wilder attempts to regain her sympathy - all these form the core of a story which moves by ruthless degrees from comedy to something very different indeed.
