Daisy Steiner and Tim Bisley meet in a small cafe and bond over their mutual search for accommodation (he has been kicked out by girlfriend Sarah, she is a squatter desperate to escape her down-and-out acquaintances), and gradually form a friendship. Just when all seems lost, they stumble upon what seems to be a perfect place - trouble is, it is listed as being for a 'professional couple' only. Thus begins a complicated plan involving faked photos and memorizing every significant (and not-so-significant) fact about each other to pass themselves off as a long term couple in order to fool Marsha Klein, their prospective landlady. To their mutual surprise, it works.
