A package holiday in Spain - but it's far from sunshine all the way for David and Amy when they're DUTY FREE.
Recently made redundant after 20 years with his firm, unemployed draughtsman David Pearce blows his redundancy money on a morale-boosting, to-hell-with-it-all spree - a package holiday to Spain which he can ill afford. And while in the "Costa Packet" he has a holiday romance with Linda Cochran, an attractive, sophisticated holidaymaker of rather more substantial means. All is well and good - but for the fact that David's wife, Amy, is on holiday too, and is looking on it as a second honeymoon. And Linda is with her husband Robert!
