Short Synopsis: Recently split couple ROXI and DOUGIE have amicably divvied up all their belongings except for their most prized possessions – their friends. But who gets to keep the enigmatic and miraculous NICKI?
Synopsis: Unable to keep their once loving relationship together, ROXI and DOUGIE amicably split up their belongings. They’re about to part ways when they realise that they haven’t divvied up their most precious possessions – their friends. Roxi and Dougie rattle through their list of friends, trading some, outright demanding the ‘ownership’ of others and flatly designating a few to the dustbin of history – the orphaned friends list. All is sorted until they remember NICKI. She’s everyone’s favourite. They met Nicki at the same time and she played an important cupid role for them. Both Roxi and Dougie demand to have Nicki, confronting her, hoping to come out on top and ‘own’ her. Nicki however is her own person, knows a game is being played out and sees the good in all. In a twist of fate, Nicki might just be the one to bring Roxi and Dougie back together.
