Eternally stoned dreamer turned reluctant care nurse, Natalie must prove her worth under the observation of bitchy widows and thirsty colleagues at a dead-end elderly care home in North-East London.

Natalie hasn’t a clue what she’s doing and she’s fed up of trying to hide it. Rejected from film school and having sold her camera for weed, Natalie arrives at this moment, a reluctant care nurse with half a diploma and 20 grand of student debt, on the doorstep of Four Acres Residential, a dead-end care home in Suburban London, a place with problems even more exaggerated than her own.

Keen to take her mind off her messy mental state and prove her value, Natalie tries to cure the home of its collective depression while a trio of octogenarian mean girls try to marry her off, a feminist spinster tries to get her to pursue her dreams and a couple of horny colleagues just plain try it on. Amidst bingo outings, weed dates, cupcake fundraisers and flirtations, Natalie finds that even if she can’t 'do' everyone, she can definitely do herself.
