June Cryer is a shopaholic suburban housewife trapped in a lousy marriage.
Discovering her husband’s infidelity with her flight attendant neighbour, she loses her her home, her husband and her credit rating, but she has been offered a solution: a friend needs someone reliable to act as caretaker in a spectacular London high-rise apartment. It’s just for the weekend, but there s good money in it… Seizing the opportunity to escape, June moves into the penthouse only to find that there s no electricity and no phone. She must flat-sit until the security system comes back on. When a terrified girl breaks into the flat and June makes the mistake of asking the neighbours for help, she finds herself embroiled in an escalating nightmare, trying to prove that a murderer exists. For the next 24 hours, she must survive on the streets without friends or money, solve an impossible crime, and fight off the urge to buy a new wardrobe.
