    Rita, a hairdresser with a sharp wit, is married to Denny, and at 26 doesn`t want a baby. She wants to discover herself - so she joins the Open University.

    Dr Frank Bryant is a disillusioned university professor of literature. His marriage has failed, his girlfriend is having an affair with his best friend and he can`t get through the day without downing a bottle or two of whisky. He refers to himself as an appaling teacher of appalling students. What Frank needs is a challenge... along comes Rita.

    In this hilarious and often moving drama, the story tells how two people find a new lease of life through each other.
