Evelyn Foxy has been happily living her adult life in her living room. She has a perfectly rational case of keraunothnetophobia – the fear of one of the 3,700 satellites orbiting around the Earth falling and crushing you to death.  Her daughter Barbara, however, is not happy with her satellite fearing mother. Tensions between mother and daughter come to a head when Evelyn casually takes an unlucky solicitor hostage in her living room.
