The story centres around a radio show dedication, sent in to the programme by Helen’s husband Joe, to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. Helen misses the live show, but her fussy neighbour Tim, who did hear it, finds a way for Helen to listen to it again on the internet.
Later that day, and quite by chance, Helen listens to a marital infidelity survey, which was featured later on in that same radio programme. As she listens, she slowly realises that her husband Joe’s recent behaviour, fits remarkably well with some of the points highlighted in the survey.
The following day, she discusses the situation with Caroline, her best friend, and fellow teacher at her nursery school, little realising that Caroline is part of the problem. Pennies begin to drop, and a later confrontation has tragic results.
