The year is 1997 and Go Away Travel agency are preparing for their end of year Christmas party. Desks have been decorated, glasses are filled to the brim with middle shelf Chardonnay and the team are ready to let loose.
Linda Harwood - the agency’s charismatic yet inept leader - is keen to show her employees a good time. However, she is harbouring a secret that may dampen the evening’s festivities. What will this ill-timed Yuletide revelation do to a drunken party of co-workers who barely like each other when they’re sober?
