Synopsis

Danny is recently divorced, newly rich, and utterly miserable. His ennui is however interrupted by a trip to the local gym, where he meets self-styled guru/owner Trevor and irresistibly acerbic trainer Kat. Soon, their three lives are inextricably knotted, both professionally and personally.
