The Rodales seem like an ordinary family, but beneath the surface things are beginning to crack ...

Jill and Mal have lost the spark in their marriage, their son Sam resents his father and their daughter Chrissie has recently become a mum and is dealing with marriage issues of her own

And while they all share advice on how others should live their lives, nobody is really taking it on board - until Mal and Jill see things from a dramatically different perspective, that is

Waking up one morning they find they have switched personas - Mal is in Jill's body and Jill is in Mal's

And now they must continue life "as normal" in the body of their other half ...

Jill faces the challenges of working with their son-in-law, Dean, as the Store Manager of a homewares shop, while Mal has suddenly becomes a housewife, learning more about his children - and finding out the secrets they already know about him!

Will seeing things from the other side make matters even worse, or is this just what they need in order to save their family?
