It's January and it's Burns Night in Edinburgh's Cafe Culture. A charming newcomer, a lot of whisky and an unexpected late guest make for a dramatic turn of events.
It's January in Hilary Lyon's Secrets and Lattes - and time to beat the post-festive blues.
Hilary Maclean and Hilary Lyon star as sisters Trisha and Clare who run Cafe Culture in Edinburgh's leafy Bruntsfield. Trisha is on a single-minded start-of-the-year health kick while trying to get over yet another breakup with her long-distance lover Richard (Roger May), and Clare is desperate for a business project to get over her crush on sexually-ambivalent chef Callum (Derek Riddell).
Trisha and Clare find they have distinctly different ideas about hosting a Burns Supper, trainee chef and recovering kleptomaniac Lizzie (Pearl Appleby) makes a new friend, and everybody parties in true Rabbie Burns' spirit until an unexpected guest makes for a dramatic turn of events.
