A retired anthropologist buys herself a cottage in Devon and settles down with her books, memories and a dog. However, before she knows it she has become the object of affection of her deceased girlfriend’s husband and eyed as a potential roommate by her lesbian best friend. It has all become a little too sticky for comfort and like the trapped fly, she struggles to be free.
