About the show
'David conducts an office romance by e-mail. He has love at his fingertips. But a shocking admission unravels his relationship piece by chilling piece. Jess loves David. She believes happiness can be bought - but it doesn't come cheap in a world of easy credit. Jess and David's ideal blend of love and money is killing them.
Funny but heart wrenching, this ingenious drama dares us to enter a dislocated world of bad debts and even worse desires.'
