A golden triangle in a pretty golden life… That is how Simon describes the arrangement between his workplace as a psychotherapist, the home of his ex-wife Lisa and son, and his girlfriend Cora’s flat. It signifies for him the happy equilibrium of his existence. Then Fleur, an old client of Simon’s, makes contact again for more professional help dealing with the aftermath of her husband’s untimely death in a little Canarian town and this careful balance begins to unravel. As Fleur’s complex and unusual bereavement issues unfold, and then move towards a kind of resolution, Simon’s own life starts to spiral out of control. At the same time the dynamics of the practice where Simon works are undergoing their own upheavals.
