AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This black comedy follows the trials and tribulations of Roo McVie - a 29-year-old market researcher and good time girl-about-town who shares a flat with her best friend EJ, and whose former lovers start dying in strange and unexpected circumstances. Completely freaked out by the fact that so many of her ex-boyfriends are suddenly dying, Roo and EJ embark on an investigation inspired by gritty American police dramas. They assemble a chart of headshots of the victims, noting names, sexual practices and other forensic details in a quest to find a pattern and stop the litany of deaths.'
