Thirty-something Lizzie Burns lives between two worlds: a mature student
and mother in the final year of an English degree she is caught in a
desperately sad, often hilariously funny cultural clash. Branded 'no right
in the heid' by her resentful husband, her disgruntled father and the
inhabitants of the small seaside town where she lives, she must juggle
Shakespeare's tragic heroines with the demands of three unruly children;
and stave off her fear that she just isn't cut out for the hallowed Faculty
of Arts at all. As finals loom, Lizzie begins to feel just how easily she
could lose her grip - and see her aspirations, and family, slip away from
her. But this woman is not so easily defeated...
