Middle-aged lovebirds Polly and Paul have been married for a number of years now, living together in a house on top of an old giant woman’s head. One morning, Paul steps outside to find that their lawn, the giant woman’s hair, has changed overnight from its normal grey to a shocking purple. The giantess, Gladys, has apparently gone through some sort of late-life crisis and dyed her hair. This seemingly benign change to Polly and Paul’s surroundings calls to the fore their deepest- repressed marital issues, forcing the two birds to decide how to handle their crumbling relationship else it slips through their talons.
