Episode 1 of 6

Duration: 30 minutes

Sara is about to turn 40, and life is not as she imagined it would be. Whether it's making urgent funeral arrangements for a dead cat, lying about her personal life to placate her anxious mother, or getting into trouble with a netball referee, Sara's life is reaching tipping point and something's got to give.

Much to Sara's dismay, it seems her friends are arranging a 'surprise' birthday party, but what she doesn't know is that they're about to set her a dramatic ultimatum.
