Lisa is a mother of three who juggles her hectic family life with running a dog kennel business. She is married to Joe who works night and day as a taxi driver.
Lisa is envious of the life of fellow mum Kate, and is delighted when she is invited to a dinner party at her house. However, the evening takes an unexpected turn when she meets Kate’s charming brother-in-law.
She makes a further error when she forgets to pick up Kate’s teenage daughter, Lucinda, from school and the Rivertys place the blame firmly at her door.
Where have I seen Anna Friel before? Most recently, Anna stared in ITV drama Butterfly about a family’s fight for their trans child. She has also appeared in two series of crime noir Marcella in the title role. However, she’s arguably still most famous for playing Beth Jordache in Channel 4 soap Brookside.
