An everyday tale of caution, courage and Cleo Laine.
Celia and Oliver are in the world’s most expensive hotel, drunk on the world’s most expensive champagne. It’s not good. They have thirty minutes to make up their minds about a risky proposal that could tear their lives apart. A powerful politician waits downstairs for their decision. Will they retreat to the daily disillusionment of running a failing charity? Or will they find the courage to reveal their true feelings and speak truth to power?
