“... there was something, something pretty terrible... Not just plain terrible. This was fancy terrible. This was terrible with raisins in it...” - Dorothy Parker (on turning fifty), The Middle or Blue Period. Fifty is a big age. Neglected artist, Clair Harkin, tries to hide from it on the Greek Island of Symi. But, of course, she is discovered. Actually, it turns out quite well for a while - besides falling in the sea she falls in love and in lust. She also falls out badly with daughter, Jess, makes up - then starts the cycle again. Back in England, the year of being fifty is filled with demands from her controlling mother in Florida, from her diva daughter and with the need to earn a living. And no word from her new lover. Clair swallows a lot of 'raisins', sweet and bittersweet, before she hits the next birthday. Will it be in England, Scotland, Florida or Greece? And with whom?
