An anxious boy searches for his missing mum in this heartfelt, funny and unique ode to perfectly imperfect families

One day, Jake wakes up to a different world: his mum seems to have vanished into thin air! With his Grandma snoring in the kitchen and older sister Rose spending hours getting ready, Jake starts the search for his mum by making a list of places she might be: Tesco? The EU? Hospital? The Bahamas?

Being a detective turns out to be quite hard work and everyone Jake turns to for help seems frustratingly busy. Life at home wasn't perfect, but he can't understand why she would simply run off like this. And why doesn't everyone else seem more concerned?
