It’s Saturday afternoon. Stevie and Mark have just bought their first home. She’s a hard-working graphic designer, heading for her weekly self defence lesson; he’s still the dreamer she met at art school, unemployed and working on his masterpiece: a pictorial alphabet for children.

As luck would have it, they have an amazing product that can fix the problem…
