Twenty Four Hours From Tulse Hill
Would-be writer Mark and artist Lisa long to escape from their uncreative lives as estate agents. A chance encounter with a wealthy client offers them an unexpected ray of hope.
A romantic comedy by Guy Meredith and Zalie Burrow set in an estate agent in North London.
Would-be writer Mark and artist Lisa work alongside each other, but both are yearning for a more rewarding life. Their boss comes up with an exciting challenge that could earn them a lot of money and increase their chances of leaving, but it is conditional on making one big sale. Their prospective client seems wealthy enough and all seems to go well - but a hitch sees their dream fading.
Along the way, they have fallen for each other, but the prospect of the sale falling through means the possible end of both their professional and romantic futures.
