Home and Away
A sleepover, a stray dog and an impending house move make for uncertain times in Edinburgh's Cafe Culture. Can the team rise above the flux and still manage to party?
It's Spring in Edinburgh in Hilary Lyon's Secrets and Lattes, and new beginnings are on the horizon for the staff of Cafe Culture.
Trisha (Hilary Maclean) is now engaged to her long-distance lover Richard (Roger May) and her big sister Clare (Hilary Lyon) is gradually working her way through her divorce. Laid-back Glaswegian chef, Callum, (Derek Riddell) is struggling to let the reins go as his autistic son Max (Scott Hoatson) turns 18 while Lizzie (Pearl Appleby) is enjoying helping the officially-adult Max spread his wings.
Nobody quite seems to know where home is at the moment - including the stray dog that Lizzie has acquired.
Things come to a head when Max's birthday party doesn't quite go according to plan and an unwelcome encounter for Lizzie results in trauma all round.
