A dark social comedy, an exploration of the way the things we consume gradually consume us; Clare realises that she has had enough. One day on the beach she impulsively steals the handbag of a glamorous marketing executive called Martine and sets about stealing her dream life. But there is a fine line between a dream and a nightmare.
