Shirley is a bored, middle-aged housewife, trapped in a stale, loveless marriage.  Her children are all grown up and she frequently talks to the wall in her kitchen while preparing her husband’s regular evening meal of egg and chips.  Shirley feels stuck in a rut and finds solace in her daily glass of wine as she muses over the lack of excitement in her life.  When her best friend asks her to go to Greece with her for 2 weeks, Shirley jumps at the chance with a mix of exhilaration and jittery nerves.  Leaving a note for her husband that simply reads "Gone to Greece - Back in two weeks", Shirley leaves for her holiday.
While relaxing on holiday, she rediscovers the woman she used to be and the happiness that she has been missing.  Shirley embarks on a passionate affair with Costas, a local Greek man, and realizes that there is more to life than the dull, mundane existence she leads back home in Liverpool.
Making a radical decision, she leaves her friend at the airport and goes back to the hotel she has been staying at to ask for a job.  Finally, she is living the life she has dreamed of and rediscovered the self-confidence she has lost.
