Barbara and Oliver met at an art auction, and fell in love with each other. They have been Mr. and Mrs. Rose for eighteen years, and have sent their children off to university. That's when Barbara begins to fantasise about a better life without her husband, and eventually demands a divorce. The problem is that the spouses share the property they have worked hard to buy, and neither of them wants to move out. A ‘civil war’ breaks out, and the warring parties are ruthless.
