Warring spouses, embarrassing parents and the battle of the hairdressing salons …
When Dublin girl Jane married local boy Jim, she thought it was for ever. But now there are cracks in their marriage that they just can’t seem to fix. When Jim announces he’s moving out, Jane is left to pick up the pieces of their family life. And then her mother decides to visit…
Determined to remain upbeat, Jane plans to make a real success of her work, only to discover that Cutting Edge, the hairdressing empire, is opening a shop yards away from her own humble salon. With her staff in uproar and customers deserting them in droves, Jane decides to play Cutting Edge at their own game.
Then life deals Jane and Jim one dreadful blow, past hurts rush to the surface, and they are forced to confront what drove them apart in the first place.
