Three ‘perfect’ lives (or so they pretend).
Here comes Trouble
Ronke wants Happily Ever After and 2.2. kids. She’s dating Kayode and wants him to be ‘the one’. Her friends think he’s just another in a long line of dodgy Nigerian boyfriends.
Boo has just what Ronke wants – a kind husband, a gorgeous child. But she’s frustrated, unfulfilled, and desperate to remember who she used to be.
Simi is the golden one with the perfect lifestyle and a career. No one knows she’s crippled by impostor syndrome and tempted to pack it all in each time her boss mentions her ‘urban vibe.’ Her husband thinks they’re trying for a baby. She’s not.
When the high-flying, charismatic Isobel explodes into the group, she seems to bring out the best in each woman. But the more Isobel intervenes, the more chaos she sows, until Ronke, Simi, and Boo’s lifelong friendship begins to crack. How close to the edge will she push them?
